    I hope this file upload works. This cake is very nice and infinitely variable.

    Someone would have to be an absolutely amazing friend for me to spend 10 days making them a cake.

    Herman the German is like having a dictator in your kitchen. It is a good test of any friendship. Last time someone gave it to me I had just started a new job. I have had better presents!

    It was very popular some years ago. I think it has a sourdough starter, so you have to receive some from a friend. Then you add ingredients to it every day or so until you have enough to give some to a friend/some friends and to make a cake/cakes with what is left over. Then your friends add ingredients, etc. It was a very busy time in my life, so I found it a burden.

    What a quaint idea!

    The cake in my recipe is delicious but it means you have a large cake to get through every 10 days or so and, like pyramid selling, you run out of people to give it to as they are all giving away to mutual friends too. I was told you could freeze the starter and use it later but mine died and that was the end of it.

    It does make good cakes and once made you can freeze the cakes. The only way to get rid of it is to use all of it up in making cakes instead of keeping a portion back for growing.

    It sounds really weird and unappealing.

    If you think growing a cake is weird, you should try growing a yoghurt plant - you feed it milk and it grows and looks like the head of a cauliflower... or alien white brains in a bowl. And the 'yoghurt' comes out thin and tastes acidic and vile!
