You need to give this recipe a try, I’m telling you! Have a blessed day, friends. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

For the cake:

3/4 c butter (1 1/2 sticks)

1 1/4 c dark cocoa powder

1 c brewed coffee (Or any liquid. I guess some people are against adding coffee, but it just brings out the flavour of the chocolate.)

2 c milk (I used coconut milk)

1 1/2 c brown sugar

1 1/2 c white sugar

3 Eggs, lightly beaten

1 tbsp vanilla

2 1/4 c all-purpose flour (or rice flour for gluten-free)

1 tsp baking soda

3 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

For the German chocolate frosting:

1 c brown sugar

1 c evaporated milk

3 Egg yolks

1/2 c butter (1 stick)

3 tsp vanilla

3 c Sweetened Flaked Coconut

1 1/2 c pecans (lightly toasted in the oven or a pan on the stove)

For the milk chocolate frosting:

2 c chopped Milk Chocolate or milk chocolate chips

2 sticks butter, softened

5 tbsp cocoa powder

1 tsp vanilla

5 c powdered sugar

3-6 tbsp milk

Step 9: Remove from the oven and allow them to cool at room temperature.

Step 10: In a small mixing bowl, add the butter, yolks, sugar, and milk. Beat until well mixed.

Step 11: Place a saucepan on the stove and turn the heat to low. Add the butter mixture. Whisk and cook until thick.
