Everyone needs a cake that’s easy to throw together when you need a fabulous dessert, right?! It’s also a blessing if the ingredients are things that are easy to keep in the fridge or pantry “just in case!” I have found that recipe, friends, and if you like German Chocolate Cake, you’ll be so glad to have stumbled across this fabulous and easy recipe! A sweet friend at church made this for my husband and me when we visited their home, and I fell in love with this cake at first bite! I used to spend hours assembling a three layer German Chocolate cake because it was so delicious that it was worth it, but honestly, this is every bit as delicious, but a thousand times easier! It all starts with a cake mix…
Upside Down German Chocolate Cake
Betty Crocker German Chocolate Cake Box Mix – Super Moist
1 1/4 water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 cup coconut flakes
1 8 oz. package cream cheese (softened)
1 stick butter (softened)
1 lb powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Spray 9×13 glass baking dish with cooking spray. Cover bottom of baking dish with coconut flakes & chopped pecans. Mix cake mix with eggs, water, & oil (per box instructions) and pour over the coconut/pecan mixture.
In a separate bowl combine cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, & vanilla. Using a mixer, mix ingredients thoroughly until powdered sugar is completely dissolved. Using a rubber spatula, add cream cheese mixture to the top of the cake mix. The cream cheese mixture will sink down into the cake mix as you add it in.
Bake for 40 minutes. Slice cake into individual servings & serve upside down.
