This is a favorite of my family since I first made it a year ago. The only change I made is pecans instead of walnuts. This is a very delicious cake Thank You.
If you're picky about presentation this is not the cake for you. The appearance of this cake was disappointing to say the least; I ended up having quite a bit leftover because nobody wanted to touch it. However it did taste fairly good. I was also unsure when to "un-mold" the cake from the pan, ended up letting it cool 10 minutes before turning it out onto a baking sheet.
This cake is really good. I was a little scared when making it. It looked like something was not right! But it is great! When turning it upside down some of the icing does stick to the pan. Cut as you eat... do not precut in squares for gatherings. It tears up pretty bad...but it's good cake!!!
This cake is wonderful. I have to agree, the presentation isn't great but if you don't try it because of that, you are missing out on a wonderful cake. It is very rich and tasty. I saw that others complained it needed more chocolate, I don't believe that it does. German chocolate cake isn't supposed to be heavy on the chocolate, it was just right.
Thank you for the great recipe.
This is a very easy recipe which I think is just as good, if not better, than "traditional" versions. I think it would very useful for potlucks and also when you simply have a lot mouths to feed! I didn't have German chocolate, so I subtituted semi-sweet and increased the sugar to 2 cups. This is a keeper.
perfect and delicious! very easy to put together. I cheated and used a box mix this time, but delicious just the same.
The cake itself was light & tender. I would make it again by itself. The topping was pretty good, too, similar but not the same as actual frosting. Everyone liked it. I was also skeptical about all of the liquid, but I didn't have any spillage!
Oh, this is so good! I like the idea that when the cake is done so is the frosting. I didn't know if it would work with all the water in the bottom of the pan, but it did.
