It was a really fun afternoon and we both agreed that we would have to go back, especially with football season coming up. We all headed back to our house after the tasting, where we met up with his sister and her husband for dinner.
Jason has always talked about how German Chocolate Cake is one of his favorites and that it reminds him of his grandmother because she would always have it whenever he would visit.
When I came across this recipe that Jason's mom had I knew what I was making for his birthday. This is an easy version of a German Chocolate Cake but it is not lacking in flavor one bit. A super moist cake with a crunchy topping of pecans and coconut makes this one incredible dessert.
