This is a great moist and versatile cake and a long German tradition that followed me throughout school and into adulthood. Somebody was always bringing Hermann along. This is how you give birth to Hermann. Check out part 2 HERMANN – The Feeding and Care for instructions on how to raise your Hermann baby. Oh, and don’t forget to check out his big brother Siegfried! He is in charge of the breads.
