Long ago my mother used to make a German Chocolate cake that I loved! But when I started going thru many of my cookbooks - I found next to nothing for what I thought?
was a famous cake. Nothing in Joy or Fanny Farmer or James beard or any others I checked. I ended up with a recipe from smitten kitchen that I changed a bit.
If I were to make again I’d use 8” tins as it was difficult to slice the rather thin layers horizontally. The filling is delicious!!
