Coconut Pecan Frosting

This coconut pecan frosting is a sweet, and buttery frosting loaded with coconut and pecans. It’s a favorite frosting for German chocolate cake, and also tastes delicious on brownies, or cookies.


4 large egg yolks 12 oz evaporated milk 1/2 TBS vanilla extract 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 3/4 cup unsalted butter 7 oz sweetened coconut flakes 1 1/2 cups finely chopped pecans

For deeper flavors, toast the coconut or pecans in a dry pan on the stove top for about 2 to 5 minutes, or on a sheet pan in the oven. You want to cook the frosting to a pudding like consistency before you add the coconut and pecans to make sure it is thick enough to coat your cake.
