Prep Time 5 minutes

Cook Time 40 minutes

Yield 10

Number Of Ingredients 5

1 box(es) German chocolate cake mix (I used Duncan Hines because it is what I had; 15.25 oz)
4 large eggs
1 cup(s) water
1 cup(s) oil (corn or canola)
1 - tub of pecan/coconut frosting, room temp (15.5 oz)

Steps:

  • Mix eggs, water, and oil until blended.
  • Add dry cake mix. Mix until smooth.
  • Add tub of pecan/coconut frosting. Mix well.
  • Pour into a greased and floured Bundt pan (I use Baker Joy to spray pan).
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes. WATCH CLOSELY. My oven took 45 minutes.
  • I did not frost it because the recipe I had said it did not need it. I just drizzled it with a powdered sugar chocolate drizzle. I was surprised at how great it was.

Cook Time 30 minutes

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients 20

FOR THE CAKE:
4 ounces German sweet chocolate chopped
½ cup boiling hot water
1 cup butter, softened
1 ¾ cups sugar
4 eggs, room temperature, divided
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 ½ cups cake flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
FOR THE FROSTING:
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
12 ounces evaporated milk
¾ cup butter
5 large egg yolks, room temperature, beaten
3 cups shredded sweetened coconut
1 ½ cups chopped pecans
1 Tablespoon pure vanilla extract

Steps:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.  Grease and flour three 9” round cake pans or line with parchment paper for easy release. Set Aside.To a medium sized bowl, add the chopped chocolate. Pour the boiling hot water over the chocolate and stir gently until it is melted and smooth. Set aside to cool slightly.Using your stand mixer or hand mixer, cream butter and sugar together for about 4 minutes, until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl about halfway through.Separate egg whites from yolks, reserving the egg whites. Add each of the yolks, one at a time, to the butter and sugar, mixing after each addition.Add in the vanilla and the melted chocolate and mix until combined. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl and mix again.Add the flour, baking soda, and salt alternately with the buttermilk. Mixing until just combined. Scraping the sides of the bowl after each addition. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, then gently fold into the batter.Divide the cake batter evenly between three prepared 9-inch round cake pans and bake for 24-28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean. Cool slightly before inverting onto wire racks to cool completely.For the frosting, heat the granulated sugar, brown sugar, evaporated milk, butter, and beaten egg yolks in a saucepan over medium heat until thick and golden brown. Takes about 5 minutes. Make sure to stir constantly so as not to scramble the eggs. Remove from the heat and add in the vanilla, shredded coconut and chopped pecans. Cool for at least 30 minutes. The frosting will continue to thicken as it cools. To assemble the cake, set the first cake layer on a cake plate and frost just the top with ⅓ of the frosting. Repeating with the next two layers, leaving the sides of the cake bare.
