Calling all coconut and chocolate fans (you know who you are)! This recipe for German chocolate cake turns up the dial on the chocolate and then gets slathered in a luscious homemade frosting that’s loaded with pecans and shredded coconut. This may be the best layer cake of them all.

German Chocolate Cake

It doesn’t get any more spectacular than Black Forest Cake: luscious chocolate sponge cake layers brushed with cherry liqueur, filled with cherries, then covered in sweetened whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Most people just buy Black Forest Cake from a grocery store, but when you bake your own, you get to skip the candied maraschinos and make it just the way you've always wanted it, using fresh cherries, rich cocoa, and real whipped cream.

Black Forest Cake

Virtually unknown outside of Wisconsin, Schaum Torte is the German equivalent of Pavlova. It's perfect topped with fresh fruit, whipped cream, or ice cream!

Schaum Torte

A refreshing Bavarian drink that reminds me of an Arnold Palmer - but better! Try this Lemon Spezi recipe or the more traditional orange soda version.
