While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Any way you slice it, June 11 is National German Chocolate Cake Day!
True or false: Did German chocolate cake originate in Germany? If you said false, you’re correct! This decadent cake is actually named after Sam German, who developed a baking chocolate in 1852 for Baker’s Chocolate Company and they named the chocolate "German's Sweet Chocolate" in his honor.
The cake is traditionally layered between a caramel-coconut-pecan filling, and is most often frosted. Regardless of its confusing namesake, it’s clearly old-fashioned deliciousness.
