German chocolate pound cake recipe

My grandmother made a fantastic german chocolate pound cake for all big family gatherings. It was so moist and yummy! All I can remmeber about the recipe is you had to cover the warm cake and let it "sweat" for awhile. Does anyone happen to have this recipe? I'd really appreciate some help with this.

Bunny, I would be careful about baking this for a diabetic. There is white flour and a lot of fat. But then I tend to obsess about diet. lol
Don't stay were you are tolerated, go where you are celebrated!
