      German Chocolate Cake | Food & Wine ; Sam German created the mild, dark baking chocolate called Baker’s German’s Sweet Chocolate in 1852; in the late 1950s, a Dallas newspaper published a recipe for German’s Chocolate Cake. The dessert took the South by storm and has been a staple ever since.
