Best German cake
So what would be the consequences? If it upsets your innards, think twice. If it adds a few ounces, don't think at all, just eat.

When we were little my grandmother would send us home with some of her rich rich devil's food cake with rich rich chocolate icing. We ate it for breakfast with heavy cream poured over it. Now THAT ought to have resulted in a few consequences, but it never did ...

No, this wasn't a German's cake (BTW - the real name is German's, because the recipe was devised for users of German's brand of chocolate - but nobody remembers this now). You could say it was very plain - if total devil's food with total chocolate icing is plain.

But I love the German's, too, with the brown sugar and coconut.

If they share it with the world , its no longer a German's chocolate cake. Its just German chocolate cake. Sort of like A Portugues man-of-war. Its not a Potuguese"s man-of-war. They dont want em.

Most little kids would run/jump/skip that off. At least back in my day. Fat children were a rarity.

About two, maybe three slices of the monster-cake left. It's still delicious.

I've only rarely gotten a bad German chocolate cake. They are absolutely the best. Pack up the rest and mail it to me.

German's as in someone's surname, e.g. Edward German. Not as in native of Germany.

Sorry about that, but in my profession pickiness re facts is essential, and it does tend to spill over into my private life.

Anyway, call it what we will, it's a terrific cake and I'm looking forward to the next time it's on our menu - about once a month, I think.

Not to worry, Farmerman. Sometimes I get carried away with my old professional training.

take your husbands big fat stupid face and smash it into the cake. Then when he ask what that was for tell him "For trying to make me fat you stupid bastard". Then explain how it's not really named after the country but the guy who made it. Then start licking it off his face. Then smear it all over eachothers bodies and make German chocolate love. That way you can burn off the calories you got from eating the cake off your husband.

tk, your professional training??? Are you a chef? or a baker? or are you referring to something darker. Something like a trained cooking asassin. One skilled and highly trained in the aarts of delivering poisons in cakes and cannolis.
Your secret is safe with me. know wat I mean, Know wat I mean? nudge nudge.

Well, farmerman, I might be a target for the Patriot Act - I trained as a professional librarian.

Of course, that included a serious background in research methods, plus which I read cookbooks for fun - put it all together and do we have a 21st century descendant of Lucrezia Borgia? Hmmmm?
