My husband and I had company one special Sunday evening. I had never made a scratch cake, but had experienced my mother's German Chocolate Cake every Thanksgiving and Christmas. I once had her recipe for the frosting, but no longer have it, and since she is gone, cannot get it from her. I typed German Chocolate Cake into my search engine, and up popped allrecipes.com, with the recipe for the cake. I was so excited!! One thing that really helped me was to have the video, since I am not familiar with all of the cooking terms. It helped me to see that my batter looked as it should. The cake was a huge success!! Everyone loved it. I called it the five hour cake because that is how long it took me to make it--this first time. I am sure that it will not take as long next time. I must agree, though, with the voice on the video: It is a very involved cake!!One couple who attendeded the special Sunday always invites people to Christmas dinner, where they have a spread of delicious food, including deserts. She even contributed her dressing one year to my dinner. Last Sunday, she told me that she still thought about the cake (about three Sundays later) and said that it tasted better than the German Chocolate that she had made; she asked about the recipe I used. I told her the website, and then was proud to say that I could contribute a German Chocolate cake to her dinner. It is a five-star recipe!
