Fun Food Holidays™ June 11th is National German Chocolate Cake Day

National German Chocolate Cake Day

Did you know that German chocolate cake did not originate in dear old Deutchland? Rather, it's named after a fellow by the name of Samuel German, who produced a brand of baking chocolate in the US. The use of coconut in the recipe always struck us as being far afield from the cuisine of Germany. Now we know why that is!

But it's a hugely popular cake, and the recipes below will help you to commemorate this food's official day of recognition. Just go easy; calories are king of German chocolate!
