recipe from Beth Burke, originally from Lori Birchall
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease a 9x13 inch pan.
Sprinkle in the bottom:
2/3 cup sweetened coconut
2/3 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)
Mix 1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix with:
1/3 cup oil
1 1/3 cup water
Pour cake batter on top of the coconut/chocolate chip layer in the pan.
1/2 cup butter
8 oz cream cheese
Beat in 1 lb powdered sugar (3 3/4 cups) until smooth. Then spread on unbaked cake or drop by spoonfuls and swirl into batter with a knife.
Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
**It is done when it doesn't wobble in the pan if you shake it. The toothpick test doesn't work because it's a gooey yummy mess of a cake:) I think it's best served warm!
