This is how Herman came to us, in a jar and then decanted into a mixing bowl with a device Brunel himself would have been proud of. Herman is more of a concept than a food, the premise being that you share Herman with your friends. The best way to explain the idea is to look at the instructions below.
Our Herman came from a good friend who is also a total food nut and who was totally captured by the idea when it was shared with him. There is something about the lengthy process of raising Herman that gives the final product something quite special indeed.
Despite looking rather like a bucket of sick every time you ‘Stir well’ the end result is a true culmination of the labour of love put into Herman.
I can give my full recommendation that Herman The German Friendship Cake is a great thing to do with friends and family and a further recommendation that the final delicious and indeed, as the instructions say, enjoyed with ice cream when still warm is just amazing.
If you wan to start a new Herman, then this initial recipe is available at the Herman The German Friendship Cake website along with lots of other Herman related things.
