German Chocolate Cake Frosting

 I love German Chocolate Cake and I have become lazy making it. I used Sofella's chocolate cake mix which is always excellent, and topped it off with this gooey frosting. Superb! Easy and decadent. 

  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon  Himalayan salt
  • 8 Tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened of choice
  • 1 cup Coconut  Crème or heavy cream if tolerated 
  • 1 teaspoon  GF vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups chopped toasted pecans, 
  • 2 cups lightly packed sweetened flaked coconut

  1. Combine the egg yolks, sugar and salt in the bowl in a heavy duty stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat until combined.
  2. Beat in butter; gradually beat in coconut cream/heavy cream and vanilla, scraping down sides as necessary.
  3. Pour the mixture into a medium non-stick saucepan. Cook it over low heat, stirring constantly, for 15-20 minutes or just until the mixture thickens and begins to get fluffy.
  4. Pour the mixture into a medium bowl and let cool until it is room temperature.
  5. Stir in the chopped toasted pecans and flaked coconut.
  6. Top each layer of cake with frosting on tops only.
