This is one of my favorite cakes to make during the holidays. It brings with it lots of memories. My dad loved it. Now I ‘m not one of those sweet lovers, even though I do love to bake. But, I have been known to cut myself a huge piece of this German Chocolate Cake and love every moment of indulgence. There is nothing like it. The coconut pecan frosting and filling is heavenly by itself, but with the sweet German chocolate layers it is completely sinful! Putting this recipe together takes a little more time especially when the baker (being me) seizes the chocolate and then has to make a run to the grocery, which is a fifteen minute trek one way.
