Favorite Ingredients Friday - Dessert Edition

German chocolate cake has always been my favorite. There's a picture of me on my 9th birthday sitting in front of my birthday cake. My mom had taken my Barbie doll to a friend. He was the executive chef at the resort my father was managing at the time. This was the first time I ever saw a cake made to look like a doll's dress. I was completely blown away. What made it even better was that underneath all the pink and white frosting, it was a German chocolate cake.

When I moved here, I had my first taste of German chocolate pie. I'd never heard of such a thing. I loved it. I've not been able to get that restaurant's recipe, but I did find this one online several years ago. You'll have to sacrifice if you make it though. It makes two pies, and you'll just have to eat both!

We're off to Gulf Shores for spring break. The house sitter is arranged so Shadow has company while we're gone. I doubt I'll post while we're gone, but you never know. The Internet options have improved there, but the time factor is still in place. Have a great week!

German Chocolate Pie (makes 2)

3 cups sugar
7 Tbsp. baking cocoa
1 12-oz can evaporated milk
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
2 unbaked pie shells

Combine the sugar and baking cocoa in a mixing bowl. Stir in the evaporated milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla, blending well. Stir in the coconut and pecans and pour into two unbaked pie shells. Bake at 350* for 40 minutes or until set around edges. Cool on racks.

How do you get your past FIF at the bottom of your post? You don't do that manually do you? I have wanted to do that for awhile.
