Homemade German Chocolate Cake


•3 large eggs

•1 3 ounce instant vanilla pudding

•1/3-1/2 cup oil (depending on the brand of cake mix)

•1 box German chocolate cake mix

•1 8 ounce cream cheese - soft

•1 1/4 c water (depending on the brand of cake mix)

•1 cup confectioners' sugar

•1 cup granulated sugar

•1 12 ounce frozen whipping cream (I didn't find 12 ounces and used 9 ounces)

•1 giant Hershey's bar - grated (other than regular size)

•1 cup chopped pecans (or nuts of your choice)

*How to make it :

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

Beat until smooth and pour into my 8-inch pan, floured or greased with something like Baker's Joy (I spray them). Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.

Remove layers and cool.

Using a stand mixer (IMPORTANT! unless you have a really strong arm!), beat the cream cheese and granulated sugar for 20 minutes.

Add the confectioners' sugar and beat until smooth.
