I just discovered something so neat! Almost my whole life I have always had German Chocolate Cake on my birthday. I was telling James the other day that German Chocolate Cake is not from Germany but was made from Baker's German Chocolate (used to be called Baker's German's Chocolate) which was created by an American named Sam German.
Anyway, I was printing an article about it (to prove this to James) and I just discovered that the cake I love so much is the same age as me! The first recorded recipe for German Chocolate Cake was published in 1957, the same year I was "published!" How cool is that?!
