    Default Friday Trivia: Germanís Chocolate Cake 🎂

    German chocolate cake is a lot of things, but it's not German.

    Attachment 159501

    It's named for Samuel German, who created Baker's German's Chocolate for the Baker Chocolate Company in 1852.

    Attachment 159500

    When a Dallas newspaper published a recipe for "German's Chocolate Cake" in 1957, readers flipped for the cake with the coconut pecan frosting.

    Attachment 159499

    The recipe circulated nationwide, and the apostrophe-s was dropped from the name. (Incidentally, Baker's Chocolate might be used by people who bake, but it's named for company founder Walter Baker.)

    TRUTH is seldom appreciated, unless you happen to agree with it. When you don't agree, you just call it rude.

    I want a slice too, it should be OK for breakfast as it contains eggs and milk with chocolate and coconut instead of salt and pepper.

    One of my favorites! my mom used to make the coconut icing from scratch-I always got in trouble for sampling it before she got it on the cake

    My GS, age 14, made me one for my birthday. His mother told him they didn't have th e ingredients for the frosting. He improvised (watches those jr chef programs) and put dried cranberries instead of nuts. It was really delicious
