My friend Frances e-mailed this to me a while back and I just put it in my emergency file for when I need something simple and quick. Yesterday was the day. I was one cake short and was to tired to go into a big production for a cake so I made this. I did not even put icing on it, just a chocolate drizzle. Everyone that tasted it raved about it. I tasted it and it was delicious. Very, very moist and tasted richer than any German Chocolate cake I had ever made. No one knew it had a box mix as a base.

Member's Choice One bite and we saw why this German chocolate cake was voted Member's Choice. It's a decadent, moist, and mouthwatering cake. Tastes like a German chocolate cake but without the fuss. Baked in a pretty Bundt pan, company will love this cake and think you slaved over this in the kitchen. They'll never guess it starts with a boxed cake mix and canned frosting.
