Beethoven’s #9 has been a Paola, Kansas, institution for 20 years, serving up hearty German classics such as schnitzel and bratwurst. The restaurant is well-known for its generous portions, and that also applies to its signature dessert, a German chocolate cake that pays tribute to co-owner Jeanie Clerico’s dad. She’s been making the pecan- and coconut-enrobed cake since the 1970s, using a secret icing recipe that calls for slow, continuous stirring.
