Homemade Organic German Chocolate Cake

Here’s What You’ll Need:

Here’s How I Do it:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit
  2. In a double boiler, bring the water to a sizzle over medium heat.  Add the chocolate and allow to melt.
  3. Beat the egg whites into stiff peaks.  (Electric immersion blenders with whisk attachments or mixers are really great for this task.)
  4. Cool the chocolate once melted.
  5. In the mixing bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar.
  6. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating thoroughly after each addition.
  7. Add vanilla and chocolate; Mix well.
  8. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk or milk, and beat until smooth.
  9. Fold the stiffly beaten egg whites into the batter.
  10. Coat three cake pans (either 8 OR 9 inches in diameter) with additional organic pasture butter.
  11. Bake the cakes at 350° Fahrenheit for 35 minutes.
  12. Allow cakes to cool completely on cooling racks.
  13. Once cool, take a butter knife and loosen the edges of the cake from the pan.
  14. Flip one cake onto the cake plate up-side-down and guide it onto the plate.
  15. Spread some of the Homemade Organic Coconut-Pecan Filling onto the cake.
  16. Add another cake and spread additional filling on top.
  17. Add the final cake and spread additional filling on top.
  18. Go back and add the remaining filling on the sides and top of the cake.
  19. Frost the tops and sides of the stacked cake with Homemade Chocolate Cream-Cheese Frosting.
  20. Refrigerate any uneaten portions.
  21. Enjoy!
