Coconut Pecan Icing

A few weeks ago I was craving a german chocolate cake with the yummy coconut pecan icing. Well I was in the "creating" mood and decided I would make my own icing. I could eat this icing with a spoon right out of the bowl, again I have done this but I don't recommend. I think that each spoonful went right to my hips...not good.

1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup heavy cream
3 Tbsp butter
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup flaked coconut
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/2 tsp vanilla

Stir together the first 4 ingredients in a 2 quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly, until the mixture is thick and just starts to boil. Stir in remaining ingredients and cool to room temperature. Use to ice cake, sugar cookies or serve warm over ice cream...Very yummy.


  1. I used to make German Chocolate cake and the icing with a mix many years ago; until I tried making it from scratch. Not only is the icing so much better; but the cake is too. I've got another icing variation, but mouth watering now for either one...and a spoon!

  2. Thank you for posting. I love the icing right out of the bowl, sad thing is, my hips don't!

I have a restaurant in Brazil, Indiana named Simply Decadent Cafe & Catering. I also do full event catering along with wedding/party planning. I must admit I am horribly addicted to coffee and wild cherry diet pepsi along with chocolate. I love listening to my MP3 player while I cook and have been known to dance around the kitchen a little. Have to make the kitchen fun don't we? I don't have any formal kitchen training, but have learned a lot over the years from a few fantastic cooks, my grandma being one of them. I love trying new recipes and my customers are always willing to be my taste testers.
