Like Cooking, Gardening is a constant process of experimentation, repeating the successes and throwing out the failures.

Upside Down German Chocolate Cake

I got this recipe from a potluck we had at work one year.  It's very good...and rich!

Upside Down German Chocolate Cake
1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix
1 1/2 cups sweetened Coconut Flakes
2 cups chopped Pecans
1 8 oz package Cream Cheese, softened
1 cup Butter, melted
3 cups Powdered Sugar

Preheat oven to 340°F, grease a 9x13 pan

Make cake mix according to directions, set aside.
In a small bowl combine cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar.  Beat on medium until well mixed and set aside.
Sprinkle coconut evenly the on bottom of a cake pan followed by the pecans, then pour the prepared cake mix over top.
Drop cream cheese mixture by spoonfuls on top of cake.  Using a butter knife, gently swirl the cream cheese into the cake mixture.
Bake at 340°F for 1 hour.

Ready to pour the batter
                                    I put pecans on only half because my son can't eat pecans

Ready for the Oven
