German Chocolate Cake

Rating: 5 4 Comments

We suggest putting the coconut and pecans right in the frosting to make this German Chocolate Cake extra special. But anyway you make it, German Chocolate is bound to please.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour 13x9-inch pan.
  2. Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Stir in 1/2 cup pecans. Pour into pan.
  3. Bake at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely.
  4. For frosting, combine sugar, evaporated milk, egg yolks and butter in medium saucepan. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat. Add coconut, 1 cup pecans and vanilla extract. Stir until thick. Spread on top of cake.

I live in Victoria, BC and I am not sure where I can buy this cake mix... I was recently in Roatan Hondurus and bought and baked this delicious cake topped with the Coconut Pecan frosting - neither is available here - Can anyone tell me where I can get this - or is there a way of ordering it online?
