Crossing crocodiles (bird-like) and turtles (mammal-like) would be a little likelier to work.

Crocotles, turtodiles?

I had never heard of 'German Cake'. It looks as though it is a variation of Black Forest Gateau.

Perhaps as good Europeans, we are less likely to eat American cakes.

Having looked at that description of the "German cake" (named after someone called Sam German), I am intrigued by the "caramel topping". Sounds deliciously sinful.

That reminds me. Ever since writing my entry on German Bread in December 2000, I meant to follow it up with one on German cakes (as in cakes made in Germany) Maybe when I retire.

It is quite delicious. I loved German('s) chocolate cake when I was younger. I demanded either that, or Boston cream pie for my birthdays, (until I became accustomed to being disappointed on my Christmas adjacent birthday).

My father hated when I requested German chocolate cake because he was fed GCC until, as he said, "it came out of my ears" when he was a kid. Apparently, it really was all the rage in the '50's in Texas. His mother and all his aunts would make it for every occasion.
