German Chocolate Cake

German Chocolate Cake

The best homemade German chocolate cake


  • 1. Prepare the cake with chocolate frosting: Mix the dry ingredients (sugar, flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cocoa) together. Beat together the wet ingredients (vanilla, buttermilk, eggs, and oil). Add boiling water and stir to combine.
  • 2. Preheat oven to 375°F. Fill 8- or 9-inch circular baking pans with batter. To ensure that the cake pulls out easily, I also prefer to cut a round piece of wax or parchment paper for the bottom of the pan.
  • 3. Prepare the German Chocolate Frosting by combining butter, egg yolks, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and evaporated milk in a saucepan. Heat the mixture until it reaches a gentle boil over medium heat. Mix continuously until the mixture becomes thick. Take off the heat and mix in the coconut, almonds, and vanilla. Allow to cool completely before layering it on the cake.
  • 4. To make chocolate frosting, melt butter, mix in cocoa powder, then gradually beat in milk and powdered sugar until spreading consistency is achieved. To achieve the appropriate consistency, add tiny quantity of more powder or milk, if necessary, to thin the frosting. Add vanilla and stir.
  • 5.Compile: Arrange round of cake on plate or serving stand. Spread half of the coconut frosting evenly over the cake layer after applying thin layer of chocolate frosting there. Aim to space the filling and cake border apart by about ½ inch. Place the second round of cake on top. Even out the chocolate icing throughout the cake. Place the leftover coconut frosting on the cake using spoon.

Expert Advice:

Use ingredients at room temperature. To bring the eggs to room temperature, run them under hot water. For a few seconds, place the buttermilk in the microwave. It has a substantial impact!
