German Chocolate Oat Cake

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Cook Time: 35 minutes | Serves 6-8

I am so pleased to include this recipe by request! My sister, Viv, requested this

amazing recipe to be featured here in the Good Grief newsletter. If you love

chocolate as much as my sister and I do... then this cake is a delightful mix of

delicious moist chocolate goodness, with a toasted to perfection coconut and

almond topping. I baked this cake for an event called 'Sweet Interlude', this

German Chocolate Oat Cake raised the sweet amount of $250. Yes, you read this
