Sunday's are Chocolate

I have seen this recipe everywhere but never had all of the ingredient's to give it a try. Hubby's favorite is German Chocolate go figure he likes anything German. This was way to rich for me at the first bite. If I make this cake again I would leave out half of the cake. We would leave out the butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar and just make a traditional German Chocolate Cake. It was very moist and tender. The nuts and coconut add crunch and texture. Quick and easy and pretty to look at. This would perk up any cup of coffee or tea or my favorite a large glass of milk.
Upside-down German Chocolate Cake

1 German Chocolate cake mix
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped nuts
1/2 chocolate chips
3/4 cup butter or margarine
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 box or pound of confectioner's sugar

Preheat over to 350 degrees.
Mix together coconut and nuts. Put in the bottom of a greased 9 x 13 inch pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips over the coconut and nuts.
Mix cake mix according to directions on the box and pour over bottom layer of coconut and nuts.
In a separate bowl, beat together butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer. Slowly add in powdered sugar, mixing well. Pour over cake batter. Gently blend in with a knife.
Bake 40-50 minutes.

It's strange, but most men do like German Chocolate Cake. This looks beautiful.

This looks fabulous. I believe you're right about it going so well with a cup of coffee.

I haven't made a German Choclolate cake before, so I'll have to try this to see if this is a man thing!
