German Chocolate Gooey Cake

February 24, 2013


In sticking with my idea to tackle all variations of the gooey butter cake, I made a german chocolate version this weekend for a friend.  I didn’t taste test as I’m not a huge coconut fan, but I am hopeful they will love them.

German Chocolate Gooey Cake


  • 1 package german chocolate cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 sticks of butter – melted separately
  • 8oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 box (16oz) powdered sugar
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1 cup shredded sweetened coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans (I omitted)


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix with 1 stick melted butter and 1 egg. Press into the bottom of a greased 13×9 cake pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl (I always use the same one that I just did the cake mix in without cleaning it) beat the cream cheese until smooth.  Mix in 2 eggs, 1 stick melted butter, powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth. Stir in coconut and pecans.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture on top of cake mix crust and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 40 to 50 minutes – trying not to overbake.
