About this recipe: This delicious cake is not the prettiest of cakes, but it does taste fantastic. A light and tender cake is baked on top of a sweet coconut and pecan base.
This is a favorite of my family since I first made it a year ago. The only change I made is pecans instead of walnuts. This is a very delicious cake Thank You. - 28 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This cake is really good. I was a little scared when making it. It looked like something was not right! But it is great! When turning it upside down some of the icing does stick to the pan. Cut as you eat... do not precut in squares for gatherings. It tears up pretty bad...but it's good cake!!! - 08 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This cake is wonderful. I have to agree, the presentation isn't great but if you don't try it because of that, you are missing out on a wonderful cake. It is very rich and tasty. I saw that others complained it needed more chocolate, I don't believe that it does. German chocolate cake isn't supposed to be heavy on the chocolate, it was just right. Thank you for the great recipe. - 16 Mar 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
