I have seen this recipe everywhere but never had all of the ingredient's to give it a try. Hubby's favorite is German Chocolate go figure he likes anything German. This was way to rich for me at the first bite. If I make this cake again I would leave out half of the cake. We would leave out the butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar and just make a traditional German Chocolate Cake. It was very moist and tender. The nuts and coconut add crunch and texture. Quick and easy and pretty to look at. This would perk up any cup of coffee or tea or my favorite a large glass of milk.
