Going German!

This has got to be one of my faaaaaav cakes ever on this planet!
only topped by the Carrot Cake.. what i love the most about German chocolate cake is it's frosting.. so goood its a crime!

for a gathering a while ago i decided to try making it myself..
just have look at those heavenly pics =D

u sift the dry ingredients

while ur chocolates melt

and cream the butter

and mix in the sugar and eggs

add the dry ingredients

fold in the melted chocolate

until well incorporated

batter ready for baking

while baking the cake we prepare the frosting.. I hate it when a recipe asks for egg yolks only.. it's not that easy dividing the yolks from whites!

adding the sweetened coconut flakes

add the chopped pecans and the frosting is reaaaaady! YUM!

I like "washing the dishes".. u know i have to try it to see if something's missing ;p

toothpick-inserted-coming-out-dry won't apply much here bcoz of the melted chocolate folded in

ready to get dressed

et voila!

the only problem is that it was messy.. the cake wayd kan yitfatat (as u can see in the pic above) I don't know what I did wrong.. but I like to think it's bcoz the cake was moist and that's an added bonus! after all, it's the taste that counts not the looks ;p
