did you know?

i was recently reading in one of my cook books that the "German" chocolate cake, isn't really German! i was a little shocked. an English fellow named Sam German, developed the "German's Bakers Chocolate" in 1852 for the Bakers' Chocolate Co. just over one-hundred years later an un-named housewife from Dallas sent in a recipe for this "Chocolate Cake" to a local newspaper and the company that owned Baker's Chocolate, General Foods loved the idea of it and put copies of it in the nation's newspapers. so here we are today, still making this WONDERFUL and RICH cake!
