The best homemade German chocolate cake with layers of coconut and pecan frosting and chocolate frosting. This cake is amazing!
Growing up, there were seven people in my family, and almost every one of us requested this German chocolate cake for our birthdays.
I was very lucky, being a twin, because my mom made my two favorite cakes! A German chocolate cake for my sister, and a carrot cake for me! What could be better than a little piece of each for your birthday?
My mom always made it upside down, with coconut frosting between the layers and on top of the cake, and homemade chocolate frosting covering the outside.
What is German Chocolate Cake?
The name German chocolate cake is a bit misleading, as it is not really a German dessert. Traditionally, the cake is lighter in color, with a slight chocolate flavor, and the entire cake is usually covered with a coconut and pecan glaze. My family’s version is a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting covering the cake and coconut frosting on the top and center of the cake. This cake really can’t be beat, especially if you are a chocolate lover!
