*German Chocolate Frosting

Well, I'm not much of a cook, but Sarah's got me craving for German Chocolate Cake, so I thought I'd give it a go.

I made Tia's chocolate cake recipe last week and had some in the freezer, just begging for some great frosting.

I revamped the Betty Crocker recipe. I made 1/2 the recipe since I was experimenting.

1/2 cup coconut milk
2 egg yolks
1/4 cup butter ot ghee
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Heat in saucepan stirring constantly until thickened-about 12 minutes the book says.

While it was heating I added 2-3 scant teaspoons of the stevia/chicolin mix till I thought it was sweet enough.

I didn't think it got quite thick enough, so I took a little almond milk and added 1 tsp xanthom gum. Got a little lumpy, but I added it anyway and it thickened up a little more, and the lumps were not very noticeable. LOL I threw the spoon into the sink of water, and it took me 10 minutes to get the rest of the very sticky xanthom gum off of it later, but "Oh well"!

Add 1/2 cup chopped pecans and
2/3 cup unsweetened coconut

I know we shouldn't have pecans, but I'd already changed a few ingredients so I didn't swap that out this time.

At this point, it didn't exactly look like the picture in the Betty Crocker cookbook, so I added a little ground flax seed to make it more golden color. Alas, I realized too late that, maybe if the cocoanut were toasted it would look prettier. I will do that next time!

In spite of all that, I loved it. What a treat! Even on frozen cake. (Who can wait for it to thaw!)

I'd be interested in seeing any improvements on this recipe. I'm just a beginner at this cooking stuff!

I have thought the same thing many times.

Or we could have a candida convention. Wouldn't that be a nightmare to cater!!

Well, my hubby didn't think it was such a treat. He, of course, eats sugar. He didn't think it was sweet enough, but it was for me. I try not to add veggie glycerine, to keep the limits down, but that might be a nice addition.

Thanks for enjoying my story. I feel like a kid making mud pies in the kitchen. It's not my gift!! When I made black bean browines one time I had chocolate from one end of the kitchen to the other.

Gotta get back to work!

Have a great day!
