German chocolate isn’t actually named after the country! It’s named after Samuel German, the inventor of this type of sweet baking chocolate from Baker’s Chocolate Company. When used to create chocolate cake, the result is a delicious taste that is neither too sweet nor too bitter, combined with buttermilk to give it that extra boost.
The coconut pecan icing adds a yummy texture that’s equally creamy and crunchy too! So to sum it up, German chocolate cake is a not too sweet, not too bitter, not too creamy, and not too crunchy perfect balance of chocolatey heaven – and well worth a try!
