Moist German Chocolate Cake

I made this for my dad’s birthday. I found it to be a lot moister than the usual German chocolate cake.

Moist German Chocolate Cake


  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 4 (1 ounce) squares German sweet chocolate
  • 1 cup cola-flavored carbonated beverage
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/3 cups white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour two 9 inch pans.

2 In a medium saucepan, heat butter, yogurt, chocolate and cola until chocolate is completely melted.

3 In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, and baking soda. Add chocolate mixture, buttermilk, eggs and vanilla. Beat until smooth. Pour batter into two 9 inch round pans.

4 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean.
