This idea of the German chocolate cake recipe comes directly from the Amish country. The rich, sticky chocolate fills it to death! This German chocolate cake actually has a funny story. When we traveled through a small Amish city a few years ago, we stopped at an authentic Amish restaurant with German chocolate cake. It was so good that we bought a whole cake for dinner the next day! Since I have dreamed, slobber and crave this cake seriously.
After many attempts, I finally perfected it! I knew it was good when my family ate the whole cake from the pan before she could cool off! I hope you like it too! The cakekorst is simply a simple pie crust. You can buy a frozen or chilled crust or do it yourself. To get a perfectly scaly and tasty cake crust, view our recipe "Perfect Pie Crust".
No matter how good the cake crust is, the filling makes this cake so incredible. It is full of decadent scents and textures. It is almost as if you are eating a German chocolate brownie in a cake dough, only it is better. It is moist, dense and rich in chocolate, coconut and walnut in every bite. We love German chocolate recipes and we have many favorite family recipes.

Put the uncooked cake dough into a pie dish. Place the butter in a small bowl in the microwave until it completely melts. Add 1 c. Chill chocolate chips and stir until smooth. Mix flour and sugar in a separate bowl. Slowly add the chocolate / butter mixture and stir until mixed. Add the eggs one by one and the vanilla. Molded in walnuts, coconut and 1/4 c. Pour into the cake crust without baking. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until the top is placed.
Check the size by turning the pie plate on the round dough. Look for an edge of 1 inch around the pie plate. Carefully push the dough into the bowl. Put the cherry cake in the cake dough. Dispose of most of the accumulated liquid at the bottom of the container. So full of small squares of cold butter. Stretch the second half of the dough and then the top cake.
Use a knife or kitchen scissors to cut the dough up to 3/4 inch from the edge of the bowl. Fold the edges of the upper crust under the edges of the bottom crust and press the edge to seal it, creating a thicker 1/4 inch edge resting on the edge of the top. Just before baking, you can wash the egg by tapping the egg yolks and the custard in a small bowl.
Brush the upper crust with a brush. Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of sugar. Then cut 3 to 4 slots on the cake. Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce the oven temperature to 350 degrees F and bake 30 to 40 minutes more, or until the dough is brown and the filling is thick and bubbling. Allow the cake to cool for at least 2 hours, preferably 3 hours, before cutting, so that the filling can be complete.
Note: it may be useful to bake the cake on a baking sheet covered with aluminum foil to catch the juices dripping on the cake plate.
