Answer: German chocolate cake is a layered chocolate cake from the United States filled and topped with a coconut-pecan frosting. It owes its name to a chocolate maker named Samuel German, who developed a formulation of dark baking chocolate that came to be used in the cake recipe. The brand name of the product, Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate, was named in honor of him. The possessive form (German’s) was dropped forming the “German Chocolate Cake” identity and giving the false impression of a German origin.
