1 small can coconut
1 1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 (18.25 ounce) German chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 box confectioners' sugar
Note: You cannot test for doneness, as the cake will appear sticky even when it is done. The icing sinks into the batter as it bakes, forming the white ribbon inside.
Note: Cake mixes no longer contain 18.25 ounces of cake mix. They are around 15.25 ounces. To extend the cake so that your recipe turns out properly, use our Cake Mix Extender recipe.
