German Chocolate Bundt Cake

I found a new recipe today while on Pinterest that has to be the easiest, tastiest German Chocolate Cake I have ever made.  The recipe I used is adapted from Crystal over at Mrs. Happy Homemaker, she has some awesome recipe you should go check out her site too.  Thank you Crystal for the great recipe.

Here's what you need:

1 box German Chocolate Cake mix (any brand)
1 tub coconut pecan frosting
4 eggs
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1-1/3 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Spray a 12 cup Bundt pan with cooking spray and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, place all ingredients except the frosting and beat with a hand mixer or wire whisk until completely combined.
Add the tub of frosting and gently fold into the cake mix until completely combined.
Pour into Bundt pan and bake for 40 - 50 minutes.  Test with a toothpick at 40 minutes.  Mine took 45 minutes to cook.
Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before inverting it onto a plate.
Serve either warm or at room temperature.      So Yummy!

With the frosting baked inside the cake you still get the flavor and it's not too overly sweet.

Serves 8 - 10

  1. I was wondering ir you could tell me what bunt pan was used for the German Chocolate Bundt Cake. I have been searching for this pan and have been unable to lacate it. I o not belive it is Nordicware or Wilton as I have been told by other people. Could you look on the pan for the manuafturer and pan name please and if you remember where you purchaced it would be nice. Thank you in adcance for your cooperation.

    1. Hi Cora,
      Thanks for stopping by. Unfortunately I've had this bundt pan for over 20 years and it only says Wilton on the bottom. I usually buy my pans at cooking stores like Bed Bath & Beyond or Cost Plus or even Amazon but I've look on every site I could find for this pan and can't find a duplicate. I know it's a 12 cup pan and the Nordic Ware 12 cup original is similar in look. I also know that this is not aluminum because it's very heavy. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

  2. Hi, thanx for sharing. Maybe I didn't fold the frosting all the way in. Some of it stuck to the bottom of my prepared (Baker's secret) bundt pan.

  3. Did not have a German chocolate cake mix so I used a butter pecan one. It was so delicious!! Thanks for the recipe.
