For my speech, I am going to explain to you, how to make German Chocolate Cake. First, you need all your ingredients. You need a box of German chocolate cake mix, 1 1/4 cups of water and 1/3 cup of oil. It’s a bit fattening, but sometimes fat makes it better and it will hold the mixture together better. You need 3 eggs, a bag of pecans, a bag of coconut, 1/2 stick of butter, a greased 9 by 13 inch pan, a measuring cup, a mixing bowl, and a whisk or an electric mixer. What you want to do first is mix your cake mix, water, oil and eggs in your bowl until moistened. You want to be sure to stir for at least two minutes so you make sure everything is mixed together and you don’t have lumps of cake mix in your cake after you’ve cooked it. If you see lumps, you just have to crush them with a spoon against the side of the bowl. You want to be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl to get all the extra mix off the sides and bottom. Next, you set your mix aside and cover the bottom of your pan with pecans. You can used crushed or whole pecans, but you want to be sure to cover the entire bottom of the pan. Then, you want to cover the pecans with a somewhat thick layer of coconut. You want to make sure to cover the pecans completely but you don’t want too much coconut because it will get in the cake and if it gets too far up, it won’t taste right. After you spread your coconut, you want to drizzle your butter over top your coconut. Once the butter has soaked in a little bit, you want to pour the cake batter over your coconut and pecans. Spread it out and make it as even as you can because this cake will rise a lot and you don’t want to have it spill out over the sides of the pan. Once you have done that, you want to put it in a oven preheated to 350 degrees F. You want to bake it for around 30 minutes or so. Check it every so often to make sure that it's baking
