German Chocolate Cake Day

It always falls on June 12 every year.

This cake is not from Germany and has nothing to do with it even though it looks like it at first glance. In 1852, American Samuel German developed a dark bakery chocolate for Baker's Chocolate. Baker's German brand Sweet Chocolate was named in honor of Sam German.


In 1957 the recipe for the German Chocolate Cake appeared in the Dallas Morning Star¨ as a recipe of the day. The recipe was made by George Clay and used German sweet chocolate (Baker) to become popular. General Foods, who owned Baker, spread the recipe in newspapers across the country. German chocolate cake is a layered chocolate cake with caramel topping with nuts and coconuts. Chocolate icing can be on the sides and maraskino cherries put up. The glaze is made from pudding with yolks, in which pecans and coconut are added and mixed.
