Low Carb German Chocolate Cake

German Chocolate CakeI don’t know too many people who do not like German Chocolate Cake and I guess if you don’t like coconut then this recipe is not for you.  This is not the sweet, sweet stuff from a box and a can but it sure is good and relatively easy to make.

 

As I am a Type II diabetic, all recipes on this website are low carb and diabetic friendly.

  • Sheila Mikulin

    You say to add stevia but it is not listed in the ingrediant so what is the amount?

    • Thanks Sheila,
      I took the Steviva out and substituted Just Like Sugar Brown but forgot to take it out of the recipe directions. I have fixed it.
