Easy German Chocolate Cake - if you like chocolate cake, coconut, and pecans, you are going to LOVE this dessert. This is a semi-homemade cake, meaning that I doctored up a box of cake mix and made the frosting from scratch. The frosting is to-die-for! Evaporated milk, sugar, egg yolks, butter, vanilla, coconut, and pecans. Can make in advance and refrigerate until ready to serve the cake. Great for dinner parties, birthdays, and potlucks.
