1 cup chopped pecans
1 cup coconut
1 box German Chocolate cake mix
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 lb. box (16 oz) powdered sugar
1 stick butter, softened

At bottom of greased 9×13 inch pan, spread chopped pecans, and then the coconut. Mix the cake mix per package directions and pour over nuts and coconut. Blend softened cream cheese, powdered sugar and softened butter and dab onto batter. Bake 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees. Cake cracks right down the middle like an earthquake and tastes great.

All hail the Queen of Butter! I’m making Earthquake Cake for my mother-in-law’s 74th birthday party today, at her request. Our niece on her 24th birthday, today, is having Pineapple Upside Down Cake. Yum!
