German Chocolate Cake - tried and true recipes?

A friend has requested a Greman chocolate cake for his birthday and somehow none of my eleventy billion cookbooks seem to have one. I don't want to just pick one out of a hat - anyone have a favorite they have made, trust, and recommend?

Try this one, but bake it as a cake rather than cupcakes. Alternatively, make cupcakes for your friend! http://www.food52.com/recipes...

I made the one from the Baked: New Frontiers in Baking book last weekend and it was delicious. Seems like you found one but I'd be happy to type up the recipe if you're interested (or you can probably find it online).

OK now I am going to go look at the other cakes too - thanks a ton! Hmm ... we are having a small crowd for a crawfish boil - 2 cakes maybe?

I have all the ingredients for this one, but haven't got around to making it yet. i find Leite's recipes pretty reliable, though. Please share with us which one you made!
