German Chocolate Cake is known for the chocolate-flavored sponge with a sweet and gooey coconut-pecan icing. It is not actually German in origin; it was in fact named after a British-American chocolateir named Samuel German, and the recipe itself was originally developed by a Texan named Mrs. Clay in 1957.
