German Chocolate Cake

For the past 2 years my husband had requested German Chocolate Cake for his birthday. Being the loving wife that I am, he requested and I happily baked!

2008 was my first time making the cake ever and it tasted fantastic. It just didn't come out of the pans very well. I have learned a bit since last year and didn't have any broken cake pieces (at least not large ones, a few crumbs though).

2009 was better than 2008. I still have trouble with layered cakes. This year I made only one change and that was cutting the recipe in half. This cake is so good, we could eat the entire thing ourselves. Since there are only 2 of us and we have a weekly Dorie recipe in the house, I made a smaller birthday cake this year.

Next year I'm hoping the third time will be a charm!

2008: The good side

2008: The bad side


I use the recipe on the inside of the Baker's German Sweet Chocolate box. It is excellent!

I think you need some 6 inch cake pans. They are perfect for smaller 2 person cakes. Even with a half recipe you can still get tall layers that way. I got mine for doing wedding cakes, but I use them more at home now for making test cakes and things for the two of us.
