Although my Opa was born in Canada (his parents were german), my Oma is an immigrant into Canada from Germany.
We’re talking some serious Nazi-occupied Germany. She escaped several near-death experiences such as escaping her hometown (with my great Oma) while bombs were dropping all around them, to being held at gunpoint by Partisan military.
In fact, the only reason she is alive is because my great Oma knew how to speak Russian so well.
So to honor my original heritage, I’ve decided to make this sugar free german chocolate cake.
Although this cake isn’t difficult to make, it IS long. Make sure you set aside at least 2, if not 3, hours to make it (depending on how experienced you are).
Here are some photo’s of the recipe.
There are 4 sections for making this cake. You need to:
- Make the Cake
- Make the Filling
- Make the Glaze
- Assemble The Cake
Watch my HD video where you can see how to make the cake. It’s about 10 minutes long, and it shows you how to do everything involved in making my sugar free german chocolate cake.
Make sure you click the little Gearbox icon and select “720p” for a higher quality video.
Fun fact: If you look at the microwave clock in the background at the beginning, you can see that I was filming this at 11:37pm. We had been filming the video from noon-midnight, a full 12 hours of filming!
A quick note: This sugar free german chocolate cake can be stored in the fridge for 3 days and it’s still good to eat. Aside from that…
…congratulations! You’ve finished an intense (yet easy) and long (yet incredibly rewarding) sugar free german chocolate cake recipe!
