Always room for dessert!
I took this dessert to a church supper last week and several people requested the recipe. I am sharing it with you today. It’s a favorite of my 98 year old Mom.
I found the recipe in the United Methodist Church cookbook. It was submitted by Sue Nelson. If you like cheese cake you will love this!
1 chocolate cake mix (Devil’s food or German Chocolate - I use German Chocolate)
1 cup coconut
1 cup chopped nuts, walnuts or pecans
1 stick butter
1 (8oz) cream cheese
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Grease a 9x13 inch cake pan; sprinkle coconut followed by the nuts on bottom of pan.
Mix cake as directed on box; pour over coconut and nuts. Mix melted butter, cream cheese and powdered sugar; spoon over cake.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. I always check it after 30 minutes. Cool and serve with a little whipped topping. When the cake cools the surface looks bumpy and lumpy.
I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.
