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!

Why am I having trouble printing your recipes? Sometimes they won't print at all, and other times when they do print, an ad is on the bottom which obscures a part of the directions.

Hi purdygood68 821725 3, I suggest waiting for the page to entirely load before hitting the print button. You can also close or "X" out of the video playing in the bottom right corner of the screen before hitting the print button for best results. Hope this helps!

What about the coconut?

Hello! Coconut is in the cake mix, and you can always sprinkle coconut on top before baking. :)

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!
