Authentic German Chocolate Cake – The Real Experience

This is an authentic German Chocolate Cake as we make it in Germany. It is not the cake that is offered in the USA as a German chocolate cake. The chocolate cake recipe we want to feature today is simple and the chocolate might be still somewhat liquid inside. The amount of flour is correct. This is a proven recipe. Happy Cooking!
