This strange but fun name was made to identify this delicious cake that is ideal for the whole family!
1 c. sweetened shredded coconut
1/2 c. chopped toasted pecans
1 box German chocolate cake mix, plus ingredients called for on box
8 oz. cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1/2 c. butter, melted
2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
2 c. chocolate chips
Vanilla ice cream, for serving (optional)
Preheat oven to 350° and grease a 9″-x-13” baking pan with cooking spray. Spread coconut and pecans on the bottom of the pan.
Prepare cake batter according to package directions, then pour on top of coconut and pecans.
In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Beat with a hand mixer until light and fluffy. Spread the mixture over the chocolate batter then sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean, about 50 minutes.
Serve warm with ice cream.
