Best Ever German Chocolate Cake

Best Ever German Chocolate Cake a moist chocolate cake and traditional coconut pecan frosting, layer upon layer of goodness. This Best Ever German Chocolate Cake or as my grandpa said, “the best damn cake ever!” A double layer chocolate cake with a classic German Chocolate Cake frosting.
Ingredients CHOCOLATE CAKE
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • ¾ cup cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup boiling water
GERMAN CHOCOLATE FROSTING
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 cup white granulated sugar
  • 3 egg yolk beaten with 1 teaspoon water
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
Instructions CHOCOLATE CAKE
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350ยบ F. Grease three 8-inch or two 9-inch round cake pans with cooking spray and lightly dust with flour. I like to do 3 8x8 pans, and just make a 2 layer, cake but set aside the 3rd cake for the kids that don’t like the German chocolate frosting or for my sisters who have nut allergies. This is also great in a 9x13.
  2. In mixing bowl (I use my Kitchen Aid), add flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir until well combined.
  3. Add milk, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla to flour mixture and mix together on medium speed until well mixed. Reduce the speed to low and add boiling water to the cake batter a little bit at a time. Once the water is all mixed in, beat on high for about 1 minute.
  4. Evenly distribute cake batter between the three 8x8 pans (or two 9x9) prepared cake pans.
  5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick or cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Remove from the pan and cool completely.
  7. Frost cake with frosting.
