Bobby's German chocolate cake
I didn’t even know such a cake was around until I watched Rev Run’s Sunday Suppers Show and saw the Episode Justine’s Jazzy Jumbo Gumbo making this cake for dessert.
It looked so delicious and she made it seem so easy to make which I knew I just had to try it.
2 round chocolate cakes
1 can condensed milk
4 egg yolks
113g margarine
2 cups desiccated coconut, but if you love coconut you can use more.
2 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup pecan nuts roughly chopped
A cup of ganache for decorative purposes
Blanched almonds also for decorative purposes
Prepare the chocolate cake and allow to cool.
In a sauce pan, whisk together the eggs and the condensed milk.
Add the margarine and cook over a medium heat until the mixture becomes thick.
Stir it while it cooks, otherwise it will burn and stick to the bottom of the pot.
Remove from the stove top and add the coconut, vanilla essence and pecan nuts.
Pour into a bowl and allow to cool.
To put this cake together, place the first layer of the cake onto a plate.
Evenly spread the filling over the layer.
Place the second layer of cake on top of the filling.
Spread the remaining filling over the top of the cake.
Pour the ganache over the top , using an off set spatula, spread all over the top of the cake and allow some to drip over the sides.
Sprinkled chopped up blanched almonds over the top.

  1. This looks amazing – will definitely be trying! Chocolate cake is such a tricky one to get right – some recipes are a bit dry, and my heart sinks when I’m asked for a chocolate cake for decorated birthday designs! Have pinned & shared this…will post a pic when I make it x #BigUpYourBlog Sunday link up
