German Chocolate Cake is at the top of my list of favorite desserts. Which is why I don't make it very often! Especially since I like to create an extra thick topping that is piled on top rather than running off like a glaze. When I make it, I ask the kids to hide it from me, but the trail of cake crumbs usually gives away the hiding spot. The best solution I have found for my lack of self-control is to make this cake when we have company and then encourage them to take some home when they leave. The last time I was slicing it for guests to take home a friend called me on it and said, "So you want us to eat it for breakfast instead of you?" I told her that was exactly my intention and she said, "I don't have a problem with that." Now, that's a good friend! This is a great recipe to serve when some of your guests cannot consume dairy. It is so easy to replace the dairy found in the recipe with coconut or almond products without compromising the original flavor of the recipe. If you don't have German's Sweet Chocolate you can use a substitute.
