Rated, Y’all: The German Chocolate Cake.

German Chocolate Cake

Cocoa + Nut + Cake = Good.
Coconut + Cake? Not so much…

What? A three-tiered layer of Chocolate Sponge and Coconut-Praline frosting.

Apparently created by a Mr Sam German back in the 19th Century, this recipe has nothing to do with the land of sauerkraut and sausage – for which, I propose, the Germans should be very grateful.

In a buffet selection crammed with tasty Cakes and Pies, this proved to be the least delicious option – and all thanks to the abundance of that dreaded shredded Coconut.

Soapy, gritty, and present in every mouthful.

Too much, I say. Too much

Where? The dessert section of the Grand Casino’s evening buffet (in Biloxi, South MS)

How Much? The buffet was $19.99 per person (with a 2-4-1 deal on the Monday we made our visit)



Moist – and yet most disappointing
