I'm thinking of going with my favorite, childhood cake: German Chocolate Cake. I was looking for good recipes and I came across one that looked like a very, dark, chocolate cake, which seemed a bit off to me. I read more about it and the author was claiming that it was named that because a German immigrant brought the recipe over from Germany. Wrong. I know from researching my old cookbooks that German Chocolate Cake was invented by a Texas homemaker, who used "German's Chocolate" brand of chocolate in her recipe and hence the name. It makes a lighter, chocolate cake and is still the required brand of chocolate for the classic recipe. I believe that they still put their namesake cake recipe on their outside label.

I'm still open to other ideas.
