Today is National German Chocolate Cake Day—a day we don’t mind celebrating in the least.
German Chocolate Cake is a chocolate layer cake filled and topped with a coconut pecan frosting.
The cake has nothing to do with Germany. It is so named because it was originally made with German’s Chocolate, a semisweet-type chocolate created by a Brit, Sam German, who was working in the U.S. for Walter Baker & Co., manufacturer of Baker’s Chocolate.
