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