German Chocolate Upside-Down Cake

Comment on this recipe

This is one of the best cakes I've ever fixed. This lasts a short time, maybe three days in my home.

Ingredients

1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup pecans
1 package German chocolate cake mix
1 stick butter or margarine
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 box (1 pound) confectioners' sugar

Instructions

Combine coconut and pecans and spread evenly on bottom of a greased 9x13x2-inch pan. Mix cake mix according to directions on package and pour over coconut-pecan mixture. Put butter and cream cheese into a saucepan and heat until mixture is warm enough to stir in confectioners' sugar. Spoon mixture over top of cake batter. As cake bakes, the cream cheese mixture will settle to bottom with coconut and peacans, making a delicious frosting. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes or until done. Serve from pan.
