German Chocolate Upside Down Cake

Here’s a really delicious dessert that is so easy, easy, easy. No need to add frosting, because it makes its’ own topping.  It is very sweet and rich, so just a small piece goes a long way.

Pre-heat the solar oven while preparing the ingredients.

Grease and flour  pans to fit your solar oven ( I used PAM for baking).

Sprinkle coconut and pecans evenly over the bottom of the prepared pan.

Prepare cake mix with the appropriate measurements of water, oil, and eggs, following the package directions.

Pour the cake batter over the coconut and pecans.

Beat together the cream cheese, butter and confectioners’ sugar; drop by spoonfuls over the top of cake batter.

  1. OMG! This is solar sin! I love German Chocolate Cake and was trying to think of what to fix at Midtown Market and think I’m gonna do this in little mini-cupcake papers. I’ll divide the recipe and stack, and that should make things go faster. Will let you know. Have a great Fourth and come visit when you can.

    • What a great idea! This will be perfect in individual little mini-cupcakes. Will be waiting to hear how the crowd liked it. Happy Fourth of July.
