yes, and you can't really do much wrong.

Or just hot fruits on top of vanilla ice cream (berries).

However, the quickest and easiest dessert is to just serve them SCHNAPS. Jawoll!!!

German Chocolate cake gets its name from using German's Chocolate - it's an American concoction and has nothing to do with Germany.

German chocolate cake is not German. The recipe got it's name from the use of German's chocolate in the cake recipe.

My German grandmother used to make a very good German Butter Cake. It's pretty easy to make and a crowd favorite.

Now THAT sounds like a winner! And I lived in Philly from 1975-1989 so I can claim it like i know what I'm talking about!

Do you serve this warm or room temp?

All kidding aside, JK, this is the one I'd do if I hated to bake and it was 90+ degrees out. NO CONTEST. No one is going to care that you didn't actually bake something. They'll just say, "Remember that time JK made that thing where she poured coffee over ice cream and how good it was?"

Hi, OP, my family is all German immigrants, & when I was a kid, my granny made a cake (she called it kuchen, which I guess means cake, sorry, I don't speak German) that was soooo good, this recipe looks like the same thing. She would top it with fruit that she canned herself, like peaches or apples. This recipe calls for canned cherry pie filling, that would work. Yum!

When we traveling around Bavaria this was THE dessert. A Schneeballen. aka, a Snowball.

It's fried dough; need I say more.

You don't have a bakery nearby? If you hate baking, hit Cosco or Sam's club...sure there's some German chocolate cake that you can purchase.

I'm sure that sometimes dessert in Deutschland is just plain Obst. That's easy
