This is a classic German Chocolate Cake made with two layers of moist and delicious chocolate cake and a rich coconut-pecan frosting. This spectacular dessert is shockingly easy to make and oh so good!
I remember my first taste of a German chocolate cake. It was many years ago at a friend’s house, but I still recall very clearly that sweet coconut pecan frosting and deep-dark chocolate cake. I remember savoring the chewy texture of the shredded coconut and how the sweetness lingers on your palate along with a slight bittersweet chocolate taste. As you can tell, that cake obviously made an unforgettable impression on me.
