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.
