I've been invited by Kai, a fellow Filipino blogger to join the Lasang Pinoy event. The current theme is using coconut. Coconut are very popular here in my country, being a tropical country everywhere you go there's always a coconut tree around. To be honest I was hesitant to join, being Lasang Pinoy theme generally focuses on Filipino dishes, while I can't cook, I can't make traditional Filipino kakanins(Filipino sweets). I thought to myself, I've got nothing to loose, and since kai invited me, in my way of thinking western desserts with Filipino flair is enough, so here is my entry.
German Chocolate Cake, it's not Filipino, it's not even German! This cake is actually named after Samuel German, who created the Baker's chocolate brand. This version of the cake, I got from The Cake Book by Tish Boyle. It's fairly easy to make however if you love a good shackle of frosting better to make 1 1/2 recipe. Other than that it's perfect.
