this is a favorite and easy to make!
best pie ever. I love this recipe....just became my favorite pie. Delicious. Had no problem finding German chocolate....Meijers has it. GREAT pie
I wanted to like this pie, but the chocolate layer is just not right. Too eggy and spongey and not enough german chocolate flavor. Would consider remaking that part like a french silk pie with german chocolate.
Made this for my husbands birthday. He loves his German Chocolate cake and this pie was just perfect. Nice change and so yummy. This will be a go to pie for the future as well.
This was yummy and very rich!
Thanks for this recipe. I won 1st place in or pie contest at work.
Great pie, easier to skip steps 1 and 2 by substituting graham cracker crust (a chocolate one if you can find it). I toasted the coconut but not the pecans. I think that was a mistake as the pecans got a little soggy after sitting overnight. In the future I'd also reduce the amount of pecans by 25%. Also I forgot to add vanilla and it was fine.Tempering the eggs with the hot liquid is a MUST. About 3-4 tablespoons worth I used and whisked well. Even with that I had a little cooked egg, but not too much.
I love regular German chocolate cake and was intrigued by the idea of a pie. I unfortunately could not find real German chocolate so I had to use semi-sweet squares plus extra sugar. The filling is pudding-like in texture and the frosting layer is nice and thick. Yum!
My cousin and I made this delicious pie for Thanksgiving. It is a very rich pie and I did cut it into smaller pieces. The coconut topping was so scrumptious!
I made this for my boyfriend's birthday because he missed having it at Baker's Square. One bite and he said it was the best pie he's ever eaten <3 that being said, be careful when mixing the topping with the egg....I had to strain the cooked egg out of mine haha. I'm not a chef...
