Last night, I spoke at a military spouses’ event…so much fun!  I made them this cake (recipe from my wonderful grandmother) & everyone loved it.  It tastes best cold with Cool Whip on top.  But, just so you know…it is ugly.  🙂

1 box German chocolate or Devil’s Food cake mix
1 cup coconut
1 pk. (8 oz.) cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
1 stick butter (softened)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix cake according to package directions.

Butter bottom of a 9 x 13 in. pan. Place pecans and coconut in bottom of

pan. Pour cake batter over top. Mix powdered sugar, butter, and cream cheese together. Drop by spoonfuls on top of the cake batter. Bake for

45 min. or until done. Cake will crack like an earthquake has occurred.

(To quickly soften cream cheese, place in small bowl in microwave oven for 3 min. on POWER LEVEL 3.)
