Growing up, I remember three cakes my mother made on a consistent basis. The first, of course, was German Chocolate Cake. We enjoyed this cake during every birthday celebration, and to this day it is my favorite cake. We called the coconut pecan frosting gravel, and nothing in this world can compare.
