Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add chopped pecans, and saute until the pecans are browned (about 2 1/2 minutes). Remove mixture from heat, and stir in sugar, cornstarch, and salt. Add milk, syrup, and egg yolks, and stir well. Cook 2 minutes over medium-high heat or until thick, stirring constantly. Remove from heat, and stir in flaked coconut and extracts. Pour mixture into a bowl; cover and chill until slightly stiff (about 15 minutes).
My husband loves homemade German chocolate cake for his birthday. My usual recipe was OK, but I decided to try this and it was fantastic! He couldn't believe that this recipe was from CL. I have now made it a few times, and it always turns our moist and delicious.
This icing is too sweet. Go ahead and make an appointment with your dentist if you are going to make and eat this! The traditional way is much better. When you start to cut corners on making icing, you always run into problems.
