German’s Sweet Chocolate Cake does not come from Germany; rather, the sweet chocolate bar was created by Sam German, in the 1850’s.  In the 1957, a Dallas newspaper printed the first known version of this cake.  The recipe was submitted by a homemaker.   It became extremely popular, the recipe shared through local newspapers and printed in community cookbooks. Within one year, the sales of Baker’s Sweet Chocolate had increased 73% nationwide due to the demand.  Thank you, Snopes! (http://www.snopes.com/business/names/cake.asp)

This recipe does require two mixing bowls:  one for the batter, and one for the egg whites which provide the cake its’ lift.  The icing is cooked on the stovetop.  Broken down in steps, it’s easy to put together.    I like to make the cake the night before it’s to be served, making the icing in the morning.  Broken down in two steps this way makes it easy to manage.
