Diane's German Chocolate Cake
December 12, 2010

This is a FABULOUS 'cheater' recipe! I've made several homemade versions over the years (it's hubby's yearly birthday request), and this by far has gotten the best reviews. This last time around I made just a few changes, and it was incredibly moist and got huge raves: used the larger box of pudding, almost doubled the cocoa, subbed 1 1/2 cups of sour cream for the buttermilk and subbed melted butter for the oil. It made for a really thick batter, so just makes sure to spread the batter around the pans evenly (otherwise you'll end up with lopsided cakes!). Also a big fan of making this in a bundt pan and pouring the icing over top. Thanks for sharing, it's definitely a keeper for us!
