A Little Plate of Heaven.

Let me introduce you to a little plate of heaven. When Boy Toy first told me about this cake recipe of his mom's I was intrigued, then flat out wanting. After months and months of hounding, begging, pleading, and promising to swap some of my great recipes with his mom he finally worked up enough nerve to ask her for the recipe.

Well ok, I didn't have to plead or promise and Boy Toy didn't have to work up nerve to get the recipe. He simple had to ask, but it took his brain awhile to remember to ask. I do have a tendency to over exaggerate.

So here's your recipe for A Little Plate of Heaven (or as Boy Toy's family calls it, Upside Down German Chocolate Cake). Be prepared to run to the market after reading this recipe, this is so what's for dessert tonight. Trust me!

Start by covered the bottom of a greased 9x13 pan with 1 cup coconut, and 1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped)

Then in a separate bowl, whip up a German Chocolate cake mix that you picked up at the market earlier. Really, any kind of chocolate cake mix works; just go for your favorite!
Then pour it on top of the walnut/coconut goodness. Which I appreantly didn't take a picture of, my bad.
Next, place a stick of butter and 8oz of cream cheese in a microwavable bowl and nuke on high for 2 minutes. 

Once it's all heated, stir well and then add an entire box of powdered sugar into this and mix well. (Yes, I did say an entire box of powdered sugar, are you starting to see why this is from Heaven? I thought so.)

Take this sugar, cream cheese butter concoction and pour it right over the cake batter. Yes, right over!
Cook 35-40 minutes at 350 and enjoy. Refrigerate any leftovers.  Enjoy your Little Plate of Heaven.
