Chocolate Cake is it Healthy or Not?
German cooks are famed for using extravagant ingredients and combining the whole into a rich dining
experience, so it seemed to fit that this recipe must have come from
Germany. And yet, it didn't — the cake took its name from an American
with the last name of "German".
In 1852, Sam German developed a sweet baking bar for Baker's Chocolate
Company. The product was named in honor of him: "Baker's German's Sweet
Chocolate". In most recipes and products today, the apostrophe and the
"s" have been dropped, fueling the assumption that the chocolate's
origins are German.
The first published recipe for German's chocolate cake recipe showed up
in a Dallas newspaper in 1957 and came from a Texas homemaker. The
resulting spike in German's Sweet Chocolate sales put General Foods
(which then owned Baker's Chocolate) on alert; the company quickly sent
copies of the recipe and photos of the cake to newspapers across the
Everywhere the recipe was published, food editors were swamped with
requests for information on where to buy the chocolate. In a year, sales
jumped 73%. Readers who missed the recipe asked that it be reprinted. In
no time at all, German Chocolate Cake was on almost every table.
It continues to be favorite dessert even forty years later.
Now bake me up a healthy homemade chocolate cake...Please!!!
GO AHEAD AND BAKE,
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
Healthy Homemade Cake Recipe Tips
When Baking with Butter:
Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the
biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68°
to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat
will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get “cool”
butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a
bowl for 5 minutes before beating.
When Mixing Cake Batter:
You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the
flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a
quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until
there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the
batter is completely smooth.
Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and
higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure
a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake
flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2
tablespoons per cup.
The food choices that we make every day have a
profound effect on the environment. From
farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and transporting it all use tremendous
amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By making just a few small changes in our
eating and buying habits, we can greatly reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help
the environment by reducing global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh
and healthy food. Eat local from farmers in your own neighborhood!
