*************

I have not heard of German Chocolate Cake until one of my Instagram follower requested me to make it. I had to google it to know what it is haha.. So I did some experiments and came out with this simple keto version and I hope you like it. Somehow, coconut and chocolate seems to be a heavenly match so if you love both of these ingredients, you will love this cake.

This cake is called German but it’s not German or from Germany. The cake is actually named after the blend of sweet chocolate used in the cake. German Chocolate is named after the man who developed that specific blend and his name was Samuel German. So the cake isn’t “German” as in the country, it’s “German” as in the chocolate. Well, for this Keto version, there’s no “German” chocolate used as they are apparently very sweet. So I used 99% Lindt Dark Chocolate for the cake which turned out very soft and moist. But what I love is the coconut-pecan filling which is so decadent. And you can make it dairy free too.

I think this cake is perfect for any occasion especially the forth coming Christmas celebrations. So try making it to vow your guests and it is pretty easy and simple.
