What makes German chocolate different?
What makes German chocolate different from traditional semi-sweet chocolate is how sweet it tastes. It’s sweet for a dark chocolate and a little more bitter than a milk chocolate, giving it an interesting flavor. Overall, I always enjoy baking German chocolate desserts!
Is German chocolate cake actually German?
If you’re wondering if German chocolate cake is actually German, the answer is no! The classic combination of sweet chocolate paired with coconut and pecan doesn’t come from Germany.
It was originally created in 1852 by Sam German, who was either a Brit or American (some slight details mixed up!). One hundred years later in Dallas, a Texan home baker sent her version of a German chocolate cake to a local newspaper. After that, German chocolate cake became a household name.
What does German chocolate taste like?
Like mentioned above, German chocolate cake has this irresistibly sweet flavor. It makes you want to keep coming back for more and more! Now, once you pair that up with the crunch of chopped pecans, tasty coconut flakes, and sweet chocolate chips, you’ve got an epically delicious dessert.
