Tried It Out Thursday: German Chocolate Bundt Cake

This "Tried it Out Thursday" post is a little bit different than the others, it is actually a recipe I shared that someone else tried.  I received a very sweet email about my sister's German Chocolate Bundt cake that I would like to share.  Candice (my sister) does not give herself enough credit for the great cook she is so here is the proof and the proof that this is a SERIOUSLY delicious recipe!!

I just had to write about the bundt cake recipe you got from a relative.  It it awesome!!!!
I got a call late yesterday to go to a small get together for a teacher I used to work with who moved to Virginia. She came back to NJ for a couple of days and another teacher wanted to have the small get together today from 3 to 5. I told the teacher who called me I would bring a dessert.
Got off the phone and remembered your recipe since I love German choc cake.  Had all the ingre. and made it so fast. It was so easy!!  Well, had to have a piece at the party and I was blown over!!! So light, yet so very moist and hearty.  The cake rose really high so I thought it would be light and dry. Not the case at all.  Little kids at the party even ate it.  I ususally prefer scratch cakes but this one is amazing.  Everyone loves a good bundt cake since they are easy to eat and dont have all that sweet frosting  Sorry I went on about this so long but I cant get over the great texture and taste and Moistness!!!.  It is really a keeper. Cant wait for my sister in laws to taste it. They are cake mix bakers.

After this email I asked if I could use her nice comment and this is the reply I got:

Of course, you can add my comment to the recipe. We have to get as many people as possible to try it. It's probably one of the best cake mix cakes I've ever eaten. It really has everything: fairly inexpensive to make if you get cake mix and frosting on sale, extremely easy to make and taste is phenominal. I think making it the day before serving made it even moister. I didnt even do the melted chocolate drizzle; just bought my pampered chef powdered sugar shaker with me to the party and when I took the plastic and foil off of the cake, I just sprinkled with the confectioners' sugar.  I'm just happy to know there's someone out there that does my kind of cooking. Cooking for families.  Thanks again for your great blog and recipes. I dont know where you get the time to do everything you do.
