Today’s “Easy German Chocolate Cake” recipe has been a family favorite for many manyyyy years. We’ve tried many different Chocolate Cake recipes over the years, but this German Chocolate Cake is by far the finest and most straightforward recipe we’ve come across!
So, it’s time for a confession: I’m a little fussy when it comes to chocolate cake. I adore a nice chocolate cake, and the most essential thing for me is that IT MUST BE CHOCLATEYYYYYY!!! There’s also my hubby, who really enjoys this German Chocolate Cake. He always requests the same cake on his birthday, and he requests that it taste just like the cake his mother used to prepare. When my husband and I were newly married, my mother-in-law gave me her recipe for Coconut-Almond Frosting for German Chocolate Cake, and I’ve been preparing it every year since then.
I know some people like the crispy effect of chopped nuts in their Frosting, and you may use pecans instead of almonds in this recipe if you choose to make it that way. Nonetheless, if you haven’t already, I highly advise you to give German Chocolate Cake with Almond Frosting a quick try. It’s really fantastic this way!
In this thick and fluffy German chocolate cake, coconut and nut icing is used to create an absolutely delicious and addictive dessert. I tried and tested this recipe over and over and over again until it was just flawless! The cake really melts in your mouth, and the icing tastes like paradise on earth!
