Upside Down German Chocolate Cake

This dessert is really something. It is extremely gooey, and moist, and very simple to throw together. This is a great dessert to make instead of a regular cake or a pan of brownies. My husband approved of it, and he is becoming quite the critic these days. He lets me know if a recipe is "blog-worthy" or not. I completely trust him, he has been testing my recipes for 7 1/2 years now.
Anyways, this is a fun, easy alternative to your regular German chocolate cake with the frosting. Very simple and easy...give this one a try.
I found this recipe here.

Upside Down German Chocolate Cake

1 German cake mix, prepared according to box directions
1 cup coconut
2 cups chopped pecans
1 cup melted butter
1 pound powdered sugar
8 ounces cream cheese

Preheat oven to 340 degrees. Make cake mix according to box directions. Set aside. Grease a 9x13 pan and sprinkle the bottom of pan with nuts and coconut. Pour cake mix into pan. In a small bowl combine melted butter, powdered sugar and cream cheese until well combined. Drop by spoonfuls all over the cake batter. Using a butter knife, gently swirl the cream cheese mixture into the cake mixture....don't over swirl. Bake for 1 hour, and don't over bake! Serve with vanilla ice cream. YUM!



I finally found an excuse to make this recipe (I'm the only one in our house that likes coconut). It was a hit at my book club and SOOO good.

Is the coconut the sweetened shredded kind? Or unsweetened?
