I try a lot of German Chocolate recipes and find the combination of chocolate, pecans, and coconut to be irresistible.  This isn’t the prettiest cake, but when you take into account that it is totally fuss-free, I can overlook that fact.

HOW TO MAKE GERMAN CHOCOLATE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE:

A mixture of butter, brown sugar, coconut, and pecans is spread on the bottom of a 9X13-inch pan.

Next comes the cake batter which is a box of cake mix prepared just like the back of the box says to, with a little coconut added. I don’t think it’s possible for a German Chocolate Cake to have too much coconut.

Before the cake is placed in the oven to bake, dollops of cream cheese are dropped all over the top. As the cake bakes, the cream cheese sinks down into the cake, making it rich and gooey throughout.

Just look at all that gooey cream cheese! Doesn’t it about make your eyes pop out of your head?
