Daddy baked his famous in our home German Chocolate Cake. He is the best baker and to think he couldnt even boil and egg when we met all those years ago. He may kills me for sharing this but you seriously need to try it. We were given this recipe from someone else so we cant claim it as our own. But here is goes(photos will have to come next time he bakes it).
1 cup warm milk
¾ cups warm water
1 teaspoon baking soda
200gs butter [melted]
2 cups plain flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
½ cup cocoa
1-1/2 CUPS SUGAR
SIFT ALL THESE INGREDIENTS TOGETHER
NOW ADD DRY MIXTURE TO WET MIXTURE .DONT MIX TO MUCH.[mixture should be runny ]
Grease your baking dish ,tip in mixture ,cook.about 20 mins on 160 to 180 fan force.[don’t cook too long it will be dry]
Because the mixture is runny when i check it in the oven i shake the baking dish so if its not wobbly its done.
As soon as you put cake in the oven start making topping.Tip topping on top of cake as soon as you pull cake out off oven
Stir over heat gently DONT BOIL.
1—1/2 cups dessicated coconut
½ cup sugar
