This is a moist, delicious cake that you don’t have to frost, because the cream cheese mixture becomes a layer of frosting INSIDE the cake, that cracks the cake apart with its awesomeness!


  • 1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix (do not prepare as directed on box, prepare as directed below)
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 and 1/3 cup water
  • 2/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 2/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 pound powdered sugar (3 and 3/4 cups)



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease a 9 x 13 inch pan.
  3. Sprinkle the coconut, chocolate chips, and pecans on the bottom of the pan.
  4. Mix the german chocolate cake mix with the oil, eggs, and water.
  5. Pour the cake mix on top of the coconut/chocolate chip/pecan layer.
  6. In a saucepan, melt the butter and cream cheese.
  7. Beat in 1 pound of powdered sugar until it's smooth to the butter/cream cheese.
  8. Spread this mixture on top of the uncooked german chocolate cake in the pan, and swirl into the cake mix using a knife.
  9. Bake for 35-45 minutes. It is done when it doesn't wobble in the pan if you shake it. The toothpick test shouldn't work because the cake should be more gooey in nature.

Prep Time: 15 minutes - Cook Time: 45 minutes Yield: 12 servings

I made this lovely recipe, and thank you for posting it, I found it took longer to cook than the recipe said.
But delicious all the same, it certainly went down well with my 8year old grandaughter.

I made this cake for my mom’s 80th birthday. It was a hit. Everyone loved it! I put a cup of chocolate chips and more nuts than it called for. I served it while it was still warm. I will definitely make this again.
