German Chocolate Cake

German Chocolate Cake


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 3oz box instant vanilla pudding
  • 1/3-1/2cup oil (depending on cake mix brand)
  • 1 Box German Chocolate cake mix
  • 1 8 oz cream cheese – soft
  • 1 1/4 cup water (depending on cake mix brand) 1 scant cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 scant cup granulated sugar
  • 1 12oz frozen whipped topping (I couldn’t find 12oz and used 9oz)
  • 1 Giant Hershey bar – grated (not regular size)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (or nuts of choice)


Follow the directions on the cake mix box to mix the cake mix, vanilla pudding, eggs, oil, and water. Beat until smooth, then pour into two 8-inch pans that have been greased and dusted with flour, or that have been sprayed with something like Bakers Joy. Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Take off clothes and cool them. Beat cream cheese and powdered sugar for 20 minutes with a STAND ALONE MIXER (important, unless you have a really strong arm). Add the powdered sugar and beat until the mixture is smooth.
