German Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake

Alright..time for a recipe, huh? This one has been requested. I am glad that I made it for our church supper this week..that way it isn't in my house where I will eat it all! I did sneak a piece to try though ;-)

German Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake

1 box German Chocolate cake mix
2 sticks butter, divided & melted
3 large eggs, divided
1 (8oz) block of cream cheese, softened
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 (16oz) box confectioners' sugar
1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13x9 baking dish w/ cooking spray.

In mixer bowl, combine cake mix, 1 stick melted butter, and 1 egg. Beat at low speed until combined. Press evenly into bottom of baking dish; set aside.

In mixer bowl, beat cream cheese at med. speed until creamy. Beat in remaining 2 eggs and the vanilla. Gradually beat in the confectioners' sugar until smooth. Add the last stick of melted butter, beat at low speed until combined well. Stir in coconut and pecans. Pour evenly over cake mix layer. Bake for 45minutes-1 hour..until center is slightly set. Let cool completely before cutting into squares (this is the hardest step of all).

That sounds delicious! I'll have to try this but I'll have to leave out the coconut. :)
