June 11th is National German Chocolate Cake Day.
Bring on the sweet coconut,
the crunchy pecans,
and that rich, decadent chocolate!
Contrary to popular belief, the cake is not actually from Germany, but originated in America. The name came from the creator of the sweet dark baking chocolate, devloped by Samuel German of the Walter Baking Company (now owned by Kraft).
