Herman the German

It's a strange name for a cake. Herman. It's a friendship cake, an Amish tradition. You nurture the dough, give 4 parts away to friends and the fifth you use to bake a cake. You can start your own chain of friendship cakes here (or here in Dutch). J got the dough and recipe from her friend Amy. Yesterday we have baked the cake, with white and dark chocolate in it. J, cousin C and I enjoyed the first slices...pretty nice!
