Some of my friends have been wondering about the earthquake cake I baked for DH birthday. I took a pic of the "finished" product and here is the recipe. This is my husbands favorite cake.
1 cup flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
1 box German Cake Mix
mix cake as directed on back of box.
1/2 cup softened margarine
8 ounces softened cream cheese (I used reduced fat)
1 box powdered sugar
Spray bottom of 9 x 13 cake pan lightly with Pam cooking spray. Spread 1 cup coconut on the bottom of cake pan, sprinkle 1 cup chopped pecans over coconut. After mixing cake mix according to package directions pour on top of coconut and nuts. Mix 1/2 cup soft oleo, cream cheese and box of powdered sugar - beat until fluffy. Drop by tablespoonfull on cake mix, DO NOT STIR. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes. Cake will fall after you remove it from the oven. My DH LOVES it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Of course with using reduced fat cream cheese that makes it "almost" on any diet!!!
