German Chocolate Cake III
The best cake I've ever made. Here are my suggestions - will try and keep brief: 1.follow cake recipe - no adjustments needed - for cooking time - different ovens=varying temperatures - stick a toothpick in it - you'll know! 2.use icing recipe on dark choc. box:**3*4&wf=9&recipe_id=51053 recipe of this icing is just enough if you're not heavy handed with it - it's very rich so more would be overkill in my opinion the icing recipe - once you stir in the coconut and pecans it WILL thicken - you'll be surprised - but i definitely toasted coconut and pecans before adding - letting it cool a little will also help it thicken 5. you can simply toast nuts and coconut on the stove top in a non-stick pan - fast and easy

Flourless Chocolate Cake I
Wow! Definitely going in the mainstay - tried and true - file of my recipe book. I'm a personal chef/caterer and last night I catered for a group of very well known classical musicians - beef tenderloin, fresh herb roasted vegetables and new potatoes, field green salad, vermouth roasted shad, prosciutto pesto palmiers, macaroons, and this flourless chocolate cake. I had several marriage proposals, was approached in the kitchen for more of this cake, and was personally brought out and given a toast for the meal (but really the cake). Are you sold? Follow the recipe exactly! I usually change things around - but there is NO NEED TO CHANGE A THING. I used ghiradelli bittersweet chocolate chips (about a bag and 1/2 of 11.5 oz bags). I wrapped my cake pan in foil for the water bath because I used a cheap spring form pan. Amazingly, the cooking times and everything are perfect. DON'T CHANGE. And a big thanks to Maggie. oh yeah - served with whipped cream (heavy whipping cream and a little powdered sugar) and fresh strawberries.
