Easy German Chocolate Cake

Easy German Chocolate Cake

1 box (15 ounces) German chocolate cake mix
1 box (3.5 ounces) instant chocolate pudding
1/2 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cup water

Coconut Pecan Frosting:
1 stick butter
1/4 cup sugar (optional, use if you want it more sweet)
1 can (14 ounces) sweetened condensed milk
2 egg yolks, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/3 cups sweetened flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the cake mix, dry pudding mix, oil, eggs and water in a large mixing bowl on low speed for one minute until combined. Beat at medium speed for two minutes more. Pour into 2 greased and floured 9 inch round pans. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until the cake springs back when lightly pressed. Allow to cool and remove from pans before frosting.

Can also be baked in a 9 x 13 inch pan for 35 to 40 minutes.

Coconut Pecan Frosting:
Combine butter, sugar (if using), sweetened condensed milk, egg yolks in a non-stick skillet or saucepan. Cook over low to medium heat, stirring constantly, for a couple minutes or until it just starts to thicken. Add in vanilla, coconut and pecans. Cool a bit before frosting cake.
