The classic dessert, German Chocolate Cake, is an adored sweet treat with a luscious and luxurious flavor profile that is favored by many.




Before starting, make sure the oven is heated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare two 9-inch round cake pans with oil and flour. Commingle the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cocoa powder in a capacious mixing receptacle.


Combine the buttermilk, eggs, vanilla extract, and vegetable oil, with the dry mix and mix well Once the batter is smooth, add the hot water and stir. Between the prepared cake pans, distribute the batter equally.


It's recommended that the cake is left to bake for about 30-35 minutes, during which time a toothpick can be inserted into the center to test if it's done. Give the cakes ample time to cool down while they're still in the pans.


Whisk together the butter, vanilla extract, sugar, evaporated milk, and egg yolks in a saucepan until the ingredients are completely mixed. Over medium heat, cook the mixture while stirring constantly until it thickens and starts boiling. Remove from heat and stir in the coconut and chopped pecans.


The filling should be cooled to room temperature before you start to spread it over the first layer of cake. In a pot of medium size, mix together the heavy cream, butter, sugar, vanilla extract, egg yolks, and salt using a whisk. Keep stirring the mixture as it simmers on medium heat until it thickens and boils.


Remove the heat source and combine the shredded coconut and chopped pecans by stirring. It's important to ensure that the cake has cooled down to room temperature prior to spreading the frosting on the top and sides of it.
