    Fantastic!! It was sooo delicious, moist and rich!! I made it for my husband. He is a peaky eater and doesn't like all kinds of desserts, and he told me that this is the best German Chocolate Cake he has ever had! I only changed the white flour for whole grain flour (the recipe says 3 1/4 flour and I used 2 1/2 of the whole grain one), and it came out prefect! Highly recommend this recipe.

    I was excited when I saw a 5 star Light German Chocolate recipe, which also looked a little simpler than the usual ones. The cake was very simple to make, and the flavor and texture was acceptable. It was not quite as fluffy as they normally get with folded in egg whites, but you don't have to beat egg whites, so that saved time. I would make the cake again. The frosting was another story though. The flavor was not right for German Chocolate Cake frosting flavor, and the texture was very thick. Finally, even if you did like it, the frosting did not make enough to frost the sides, only between the layers and the top. The search continues for a good frosting....
