I am wanting to make some German chocolate cupcakes for my neighbors birthday it's her favorite and I haven't found a recipe that I like based on reviews. So if anyone has a recipe they like would you mind sharing it?? I've never made German chocolate cake actually I've never eaten any either. I don't like the texture of coconut. All the reviews I've read made a host of different changes so I'm looking for a good solid recipe :)
On the back of the Bakers German's chocolate box. If your neighbor doesn't want an overly chocolate cake, which this is. You'll need to make sure your egg whites are not overly stiff, nor oven too hot, nor baked too long or the cc will shrink like prunes.
like red velvet, opinions of "good" German chocolate cake differ greatly on how much chocolate taste should be there.....
then there's the frosting........
@Rfisher- she said that she likes them bc they are decadent she doesn't know I'm making them so I can't really ask lol. She doesn't like red velvet I do know that her husband happens to love the ones I make. I got the recipe for the cupcakes off the box I just happened to look while I was at the store and then I found a recipe for German chocolate that I'll use. So I'm piecing two recipes together :) crossing my fingers she loves them lol.
the only way to make a real german's choco cake is with german's chocolate -- so following the recipe on the box is a good way to go -- a man named 'german' created 'german's chocolate' it's not like 'germany's chocolate cake -- it's a mild sweet choco cake and it's got the ooey gooey filling -- you can get a little creative with the filling but the chocolate is not negotiable for a real gcc -- if other choco is used it's still a good maybe even be a better choco cake but it's not technically a german's choco cake -- fwiw
i love the ones from whole foods -- they have a regular chocolate filling and the ooey gooey traditional stuff piled up on top and it's not german's choco cake it's a nice choco cake --
so there's that for the idea pot -- just need to determine which kind she might be expecting -- or even another variation
I followed the recipe on the German Chocolate box and also made the topping from the box recipe as well adding a few touches I read from Allrecipes.com I think they turned out great!! I don't generally care for coconut but I really enjoyed these :)
i'll take a dozen! oooh they look great
They look wonderfully and deliciously decadent. Bet she will love them.
Thanks!!! I'm not going to lie I ate two lol. You have to double check your work right ;) I'll let you all know what she thinks. We're actually going to make a German chocolate cake with the topping between the layers and a chocolate buttercream on the sides and a piped border on top with the coconut pecan topping I'll post pics of that too!!
Enjoy some of that for me.........can't eat it .......... allergic to coconut :(
oh bummer, kakeladi! i'm allergic too i break out in cellulite :)
Here is the German Chocolate Cake we made iced with Chocolate Buttercream for my neighbor :)
