Lazy German Chocolate Cake

Yummy!  This cake is nice and moist, quick to make, and is sure to be a crowd pleaser.  I like that it takes no time at all to throw together, and who doesn't love chocolate?

German Chocolate Cake mix
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup sugar
3 egg yolks (beaten)
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla.
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

Prepare cake mix as directed by the box.  (It should be enough to make two round cakes)
For frosting, combine 1 cup evaporated milk, 1 cup sugar, 3 beaten egg yolks, 1/2 cup butter, & 1 teaspoon vanilla.
Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.  (It takes a little bit, just think about the arm muscles you are getting ;-) )
Add 1 cup flaked coconut & 1 cup chopped pecans.
Make sure to let the frosting sit for a few minutes to cool before frosting the cake. 
Frost cake.
