German Chocolate Cake

Yum, Cake!
I LOVE cake!
The only thing I need when making a cake is that it needs to be moist.
I have been on the look out for a moist chocolate cake and I found this one.
 Its a dark chocolate cake and its extremely moist!
You might not be aware, but this cake is so delicious, that you might want 2 pieces!

Deep Dark Chocolate Cake
2 c. sugar
1 3/4 c. flour
3/4 c. baking cocoa
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs
1 c. milk
1/2 c. veg oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1 c. boiling water

Heat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 pan or 2-9 inch round pans. In large mixer bowl, stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add eggs, milk, oil and vanilla. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in water. (Batter will be very thin)
 Pour batter evenly into the round pans or fill a 9x13 prepared pan.

For round pans, bake 30-35 minutes
For 9x13 pan or 8x8 square pans, bake for 35-40 minutes

Cool slightly and then frost with desired frosting.

I frosted mine with a coconut pecan topping and it was mighty yummy!

In case you don't have a good recipe for the coconut topping, here's mine:

Coconut Pecan Topping

1 stick butter
1/4 c. packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp. cream
2 Tbsp. light corn syrup
1 c. coconut
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1 tsp. vanilla

In a small saucepan melt butter, add brown sugar, cream and corn syrup. Cook over medium heat until smooth and bubbly. Remove from heat and stir in coconut, pecans and vanilla. Cool slightly.

It's M-m-m Good!!!

Have a great week!
