A lot of people give up chocolate for lent. The best possible reward for a person is to have a nice piece of chocolate on Easter. This is the best cake to have on hand. It is that chocolate cake that is iced with a creamy coconut frosting. When I was researching this recipe I found that it is not German at all. German Chocolate Cake was originally made with a type of Baker’s Chocolate called German’s Sweet Chocolate bar. German’s Chocolate was a type of chocolate that was made for Baker’s by a man named Sam German. Yep, the cake is named after a type of chocolate, not a country. I had no idea. No matter where it comes from, it is super tasty.
