Whenever we make this recipe in the Mr. Food Test Kitchen it seems to fly right off the plate. We end up with some very happy bellies around here and we bet the bellies around your table will be very happy as well!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package German chocolate cake mix
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1 (16-ounce) package powdered sugar
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

What to Do

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. Stir together cake mix, 1 egg, the pecans, and butter; press mixture into a lightly greased 9-inch by 13-inch pan.
     
  2. Beat powdered sugar, cream cheese, and remaining 3 eggs at medium speed of an electric beater until creamy. Spoon powdered sugar mixture over batter in pan.
     
  3. Bake 1 hour. Cool and cut into 2-1/2-inch to 3-inch squares. 
     

Serving Suggestion

When we serve up slices of our German Chocolate Snack Cake we like to add a scoop of ice cream or whipped topping!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

16 ounces of sugar?! Why? Way too much....especially with cream cheese which doesn't need much....maybe 1/3 cup?

Hi there! 16 oz of sugar is the correct amount for this recipe. If you would like to lessen the amount of sugar to 8 oz for a less sweetened cake, then you can do so as well. Enjoy! :)

I made this for a church dinner. Wasn't impressed with the turnout. Brought most of it home and it sat in the refrigerator until I threw it out.

I made this recipe this past weekend to take to my stepdaughter and her family, and it turned out great...actually better than I was expecting!! I might double the amount of pecans next time, but it was really yummy anyway!

I forgot to mention that I didn't toast the pecans...totally forgot but it was so good anyway!

You may be serving pasta as the main dish, but when you serve our recipe for Crispy Sesame Artichokes on the side, you're going to have yourself a main attraction. These tender-cooked artichoke hearts are crispy-coated and full of flavor. Plus, they taste even better when dipped into our creamy lemon sauce!
