Earthquake Cake

My sister made this recipe this past weekend, it was an old one my mom had saved from a newspaper. It was so delicious and she threw it together so quickly, I needed to share. Chocolate + coconut + powdered sugar + cream cheese…yeah, what’s not to love? Throw some vanilla ice cream into the mix and it’s even better. WARNING: it doesn’t look “pretty” hence the name earthquake.


1 cup nuts

1 cup coconut

1 German chocolate cake mix


1 lb. powdered sugar

1 stick butter

1 8 oz. package cream cheese at room temp

1 tsp vanilla


Spread nuts and coconut on bottom of a 9×13 greased cake pan. Mix cake according to directions and pour over bottom layer. Mix icing ingredients completely and poor over batter. Bake at 350 degreed for 45 minutes.
