Pair North Carolina’s Mimi’s Mountain Mixes Beer Bread with Carolina Gold Oil’s Mediterranean Dipping Oil for an easy fun nibble. Great addition to your charcuterie boards too! I gave a little twist and used orange beer…. realllll good!

In honor of #NationalGermanChocolateCakeDay today, I’m sharing my Aunt Fran’s recipe. She made a gazillion of these over the years and it was always one of the first to go at our church homecoming days. Some of us would go get dessert first to assure we got some before everybody else hit that table.
I don’t have a really great picture. Actually, my sister, who does little cooking, made this one last year and snapped this picture. Even my cousins couldn’t find a picture of their mama’s delicious cake. So just know it’s delicious!
Fortunately, I have her recipe preserved in a cookbook of Perry family recipes I compiled decades ago. I’m so glad Aunt Fran shared her recipe with me way back then… so I can share with you!
DO make one… and if you do, send me a picture and I will add it here.
I hope you have a Happy German Chocolate Cake Day! What a great thing to celebrate…
Come over and join the fun on my facebook page where I’ve shared this recipe today.
The delicious homemade German Chocolate Cake is, as they say, fit'n!
- 4 ounce bar German chocolate
- 1/2 cup boiling water
- 1 cup butter or margarine
- 2 cups sugar
- 4 egg yolks, unbeaten
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups sifted cake flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 4 egg whites, stiffly beaten
- 1 cup evaporated milk
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 egg yolks
- 1/2 cup margarine
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups coconut
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350.
Melt chocolate in boiling water; cool.
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add egg yolks, one at a time; beat well.
Add chocolate and vanilla; mix well.
Sift flour, salt and soda together.
add alternately with buttermilk to chocolate mixture; beat until smooth.
Fold in egg whites.
Pour into 3 deep 8" or 9" was paper lined baking pans.
Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes. Cool.
Combine everything except coconut and nuts in a saucepan. Cook about 12 minutes over medium heat, stirring constantly as this will scorch easily.
Remove from heat and beat in coconut pecans. Beat until thick enough to spread on layers and side of cake.

Sometimes, a simple pie is all that’s needed to round out Easter lunch or a spring supper… or just to enjoy all by itself. Like this Spiced Cream Plum Pie. Not a plum fan? You can sub other fruits like summer peaches with the same tasty outcome!

January has me thinking “winter whites.” So I tweaked my GrandMa Perry’s Red Velvet Cake a little into this White Velvet version… served on my mama’s cake stand. I like to make it a day ahead and chill for cake to “ripen” and let all the flavor bloom and cake to moisten from the icing.

You will want to keep some tea biscuits on hand in your freezer to make some of these little treats with Peggy Rose’s Jelly… anytime!

Are you pie? or Cake? I love both, but really fond of good PIE! Good, simple pie. This chocolate pecan gooey-on-the-bottom pie checks a lot of boxes for me. And the recipe makes 2 pies… one to keep, and one to share!

Cheesy gluten and carb free bagels… with a kick of cayenne and a dusting of crispy everything bagel dust!

Pull out a muffin tin and bake some hoop cheese biscuits… fluffy biscuits with a hunka cheese hidden inside for the BEST first bite surprise!

No need to make crust because this simple vintage coconut pie makes its own. Mama Perry’s Coconut Pie makes great little pie bites too, for serving at gatherings so everybody can get a “bite of pie!”
