Family German Chocolate Cake .

This recipe has been in my family for quite a while. My extraordinary grandmother could make this with her eyes shut. My dad was brought into the world on her birthday so she made this cake for him consistently. Indeed, even sent it to him in Korea when he was positioned there in the military.


  • 1 (4 ounce) bundle sweet baking chocolate (like Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate®) – broken into pieces
  • ½ cup boiling water
  • 1 cup margarine, softened
  • 2 cups white sugar

  • 2 ½ cups sifted all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ¼ cup margarine
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ⅓ cups sweetened flake coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Stage 2
Place the pieces of chocolate into the bubbling water and mix until the chocolate has dissolved; put away to cool. In a huge bowl, beat 1 cup of mellowed margarine with 2 cups of sugar with an electric blender until light and soft. Mix in 4 egg yolks, each in turn, beating great after every expansion.

Stage 4
In a metal or glass bowl, beat the saved egg whites until they hold solid pinnacles when the blenders are lifted straight up. Tenderly overlay the beaten egg whites into the hitter, keeping however much volume as could reasonably be expected. Empty the player into the pre-arranged cake skillet.

Stage 5

Stage 6

Heat to the point of boiling, decrease intensity to medium, and cook until thickened, blending continually, around 12 minutes.
