If you're already sick of pumpkin, but searching for a dessert that can feed a holiday crowd, look no further than The Gramercy Tavern Cookbook's German chocolate cake. Crunchy, chewy frosting is spread between sweet and simple chocolate cake. It's an intersection of coconut, chocolate, and toasted pecan that's deeply satisfying.
