    Susie, this recipe is wonderful. I made it with Bakers Sweet German Chocolate so I reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups. I would give it 10 stars if I could. I frosted it with the regular German Chocolate frosting....the one with coconut and pecans. It is a winner. I'll never make German Chocolate Cake the other way again. This recipe is much easier and I like that I can bake it in a bundt pan. Decadence is an understatement!

    This is decadence on a plate. And of course I made it with the chocolate glaze, who could resist? Only used 2 tbsp of water in the glaze, came out a little thicker but that is what I was going for.
