Dessert -Volcano Cake

Don't you just love a great dessert? I love the following cake recipe and I hope that you do too!

SERVES 12-16
1 cup shredded coconut
1cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 package German chocolate cake mix
10 bite-size Almond Joy candy bars, chopped
One 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup (1 stick butter), at room temperature
2 cups confectioners' sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. Mix the coconut and nuts and spread them evenly in the pan. Prepare the cake mix as directed on the box. Stir in the chopped candy bars. Pour the batter over the coconut and nuts. Combine the cream cheese, butter, and sugar. Randomly drop tablespoonfuls of this on top of the batter, do not spread them. Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until sides of the cake pull away from the pan. I love this cake hot with whipped cream or ice cream. I love it when it has cooled down too.

This sounds sooo good, but as as Type 2 diabetic, I think I'd better stay away from this one.

Just having fun cooking, shopping, and sharing ideas! said...
