What's for Dessert? German Chocolate Cake

Filed in Gather Food Essential by on February 2, 2008 0 Comments

To save time (and backache) I made the cake from a box mix, however, the coconut topping was made from scratch. I cooled the cake slightly and spread with topping.

1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup heavy cream or half and half
1 t vanilla
1 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Combine sugar, butter and cream in a medium saucepan on medium low heat. Bring to a simmer and cook one minute. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla, coconut and walnuts. Cool slightly.

Spread on top of warm cake.

Absolutely scrumptious!http://media-files.gather.com/images/d902/d575/d744/d224/d96/f3/full.jpg
