German Chocolate Cake


Delicious gooey chocolate cake filled with creamy  caramel flavored coconut pecan frosting will surely be something every chocolate cake lover would die for..and for a chocolate lover like me this was divine.When I first saw the German chocolate cake I was impressed by the beautiful stack of cakes with this gooey frosting and finally ended making one at home. I feel it is one of the most delicious chocolate cake.I have brought a little alterations but for the exact recipe check here.For the chocolate cake you can use either melted baking chocolate or a combination of baking chocolate and unsweetened cocoa powder.


Ingredients for the filling

Condensed milk- 8 ounce or 1/2 tin
Butter - 3 tsp
milk- 2 tsp
vanilla essence- 1tsp
Egg yolks 2
Chopped pecans- 3/4 cup
Sweet Coconut - 3/4 cup
Salt- a pinch

Ingredients for cake
1)Flour- 2 cup

Butter - 3/4 stick
Cocoa- 1/2 cup
Baking powder- 1 1/2tsp
Baking soda- a pinch
salt- a pinch

2)Semi sweet chocolate- 4 ounce
Egg- 3

Butter milk- 3/4 cup
Sugar- 3/4 cup
Vanilla essence- 1 tsp




To make the frosting
Heat condensed milk, two tsp of milk and butter. When this comes to a boil beat egg yolks in a separate bowl and add two to three tsp of this hot liquid and whisk vigorously. Quickly add this egg mixture to the boiling condensed milk and stir continuously till thick like custard. Add in chopped pecan coconut and vanilla essence and allow this mixture to cool completely.
For the cake 
Heat oven to 350 degree F and prepare baking pan by greasing it and then dusting with flour.
In a double boiler melt chocolate and allow to cool. Combine the dry ingredients listed under one and keep aside.
Beat butter and sugar until it becomes creamy and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and continue beating.Add vanilla essence and melted chocolate and combine. Now add little by little flour mixture and butter milk and gently fold in. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes or till the tooth pick inserted at the center comes out clean. Let it cool down completely before frosting.

  47. can u tell me the amount of butter used in beating the sugar butter mixture...the amount of sugar is given as 3/4 cup but cant find the amount of butter ...and did u use cake flour or all purpose flour...thankyou.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hi Sumi, Thanks for stopping by..I am so glad you found this cake recipe interesting
    I used all purpose flour, but if you have cake flour do use it as it gives better results and finer texture.
    I used 3/4 stick of butter ( 6 tbs of butter)
    Happy baking :)
