Did you know German Chocolate Cake has nothing to do with Germany? It was the dudes name who used the sweetened chocolate or something.
It doesn't matter to me. I just know that it is my favorite cake! It's always been my favorite!
So when I saw Tiffanee's recipe for Coconut Pecan Frosting, I knew this would be my next cake. Until now, I've only eaten this frosting out of a can. Personally, I think it's awesome out of the can.
But this. This is amazing. I seriously could just hide in the corner and eat this with a spoon.
Okay, I admit, I did take a spoonful. (or three)
German Chocolate Amish Friendship Bread
About one cup starter
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup applesauce
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups flour

Coconut Pecan Frosting
From One Crazy Cookie
1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup butter
4 egg yolks, slightly beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
7 oz. shredded coconut
1 1/2 (7 oz) cups pecans, (I chopped half and kept half whole)
Place milk, sugar, butter, egg yolks and vanilla in a sauce pan. On medium heat, stir until butter is melted. Add coconuts and nuts. Turn the temp up to medium high and stir constantly, for about 12 minutes or until thick and light golden brown. Cool and then frost the cake! Or hide in the corner and eat with a spoon!
Total calories = 5322 calories for the frosting only
18 servings = 296 calories per serving (of frosting, not with the cake)
I didn't figure out the exact calories for the cake. I estimated before and it is ABOUT 300 calories for an 18th. I make this in 2 - 8 x 8 pans and we cut it into 9 pieces which are pretty big and estimate that each piece is about 300 calories.
