German chocolate cake is my absolute favorite cake. What is better than a moist and delicious cake make with chocolate, coconut, or pecans (or mixed nuts)?
1 can of evaporated milk
3 egg yolks
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sugar
1 cup nuts (chopped)
1 - 14oz bag of coconut
In a large pan, combine milk, sugar, eggs, and butter. Cook over medium heat until thick or until the back of a spoon is coated. Please stir constantly due to the mixture can burn very quickly.
Once thick, remove from heat and stir in coconut and nuts.
Allow to cool and add to your favorite chocolate cake layer.
