Best ever Homemade German Chocolate Cake, a moist cake with coconut and pecans!!
- 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 it to cool.
In a saucepan, whisk together the eggs and the condensed milk.
Add the margarine and cook over 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 stovetop 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.
It looked so delicious and she made it seem so easy to make which I knew I just had to try.
