Homemade 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)

How to make it :

Combine cake mix, vanilla pudding, eggs, and oil & water according to cake mix package instructions.

Beat until smooth and pour into two 8″ pans – greased & floured or sprayed with something like Bakers Joy (I spray them). Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

Remove and cool layers.

With a STAND ALONE MIXER (important! unless you have a REALLY strong arm!) beat cream cheese and granulated sugar for 20 minutes.

Add in confectioners sugar and beat just until smooth.
