German 02 Chocolate Cake (page 137) – tortenboden take

half recipe of ROSE’S heavenly CAKES:  German Chocolate Cake (page 137) fills my 8 cup silicone tortenboden pan (12″ diameter).  then, half recipe of Classic German Chocolate Cake Filling did the trick, and i hope you agree.

soundtrack:  apple iphoto’09 theme music, classic

i love this filling so much, it takes me back to my childhood.  the taste of condensed milks it is.  i used fresh coconut and mac nuts.  it really is delicious filling.

    Righto Hector, I will comment!

    An inspiring take on the german chocolate cake. I am doing it next week in the HCB free choice week. I wished I was still in Australia where the macadamias are plentiful and the sun is shining. I will save my pennies, bake it as per the recipe and stay in grey old London.

    BTW loved the photos of the Rose Genoise – the cut cake is spectacular.

      many thx N. i am certain the german chocolate cake filling will be just as good with the original ingredients. i REALLY absolutely loved this filling, makes me feel like a child enjoying sweet milk.

      most of my takes are done on different pans than the book, but for the Genoise Rose i naturally felt to use the original rose bundt pan. when i was editing and posted Rose’s demo on youtube, she was so happy to show on camera how a slice of this cake looks. i waited months before i could share this since i had the videos many months before the books was out!
