Or can it be an ice-cream-chocolate cake??

Those all sound good. I was looking for the traditional american type cake. A good cake recipe with the coconut goo for frosting. It is hubby's favorite and I'm always looking for a variety or different way to make it so it isn't the same thing every year. Anything you have would be great!

Thanks!

It's called german chocolate cake because of old Sam german, not because it had anything to do with the country of Germany.

To make a traditional german chocolate cake you need to use a particular type of chocolate -- Baker's German's or an equivalent. That's what made it distictive. Otherwise it will be your basic chocolate cake.

Baker's German's comes in a green box with a picture of German Chocolate cake on it.
That is actually a great background. Hubby would really like to know about it so I'm going to write that up for him!

Sounds like I need to go buy that chocolate and follow the recipe. MMMMM.....

ok ladies - I went and got the green german baking chocolate and made the cake and holy cow! It was sooooo sweet and I love rich things. It wasn't rich but just super sweet. Hubby loved it though and I can't eat anymore of it because of the sweetness. I've been taking pieces into my coworkers and they love it.


Thanks for the help!

Anyone know of a great bakery in California that makes a German Choc cake? ALthough I love home made, one can't always find the time.

I've tried some local smaller markets, but haven't had much success.

Thanks much.

mrsdove, when you said green german baking chocolate it threw me for a loop. I was trying to think of what does green have to do with baking chocolate? Then I realized you were talking about the box!! I am glad that you cake turned out well.
