One of my friends from my hometown of El Dorado AR shared this recipe on Facebook. I had to try it. I love German Chocolate Cake and Cheesecake so when I saw this combination I knew it would be the best of both worlds! This was really easy to prepare believe me if I did it anybody can. It was tasty!!!
1Prepare cake batter according to package directions; set aside. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smoothh. Add eggs; beat on low speed just until combined.
2Pour half of the cake batter into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Gently pour cream cheese mixture over batter. Gently spoon remaining batter over top; spread to edge of pan.
3Bake at 325 for 70-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour.
4For frosting, in a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, milk, butter, and egg yolks. Cook and stir over medium- low heat until thickened and a thermometer reads 160 or is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon.
5Remove from the heat. Stir in vanilla; fold in coconut and pecans. Cool until frosting reaches spreading consistency. Frost cooled cake. Refrigerate leftovers.
