Sounds like a good movie title, huh?
Well, this is a little overdue, but I made this delicious German Chocolate Cake for my dad’s birthday a couple of weeks ago. And let me preface with this; it was my first time baking in my new “old” home, complete with a circa 1950’s oven, and…my first German Chocolate Cake from scratch. So, as you can see from the photo below, things turned out pretty darn well I’d say!
This is a great recipe I found on Allrecipes.com. http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Willard-Family-German-Chocolate-Cake/
Ok, and here’s another kicker for you; I made this “German” chocolate cake without the German chocolate baking squares. I’m chuckling to myself at the irony, but it turned out really fantastic with a substitution of chocolate chips instead.
I added the “drizzle” too which was really easy to do; melt some chocolate and a little coconut oil in a bowl in the micro or a pan over the stove.
My “Granny” used to make this for my dad’s birthday every year when he was a child. I wish I had her recipe, but I can only imagine how wonderful it was. Meanwhile, I send out loving thoughts for my dad – I’m so glad I was able to do this for you this year. You see, it’s been years and years since we lived close enough to spend the birthdays together as a family. So, this past celebration was very special to me and I wish you many more happy, and healthy years, dad! I love you!
