I had a hectic week and didn't see the message for a Disaster Cake recipe until tonight. Here's one I made for my Bunco group that was a great hit. I originally got the recipe from a co-worker of my husband's and have shared it more than once since getting it.
Grease bottom only of 9x13-inch pan. Preheat oven to 350F. Mix coconut and pecans and spread in bottom of pan. Prepare cake mix according to package directions and pour over coconut-pecan mixture. Cream together remaining ingredients and spoon in dollops over cake batter. Bake 45-50 minutes. Note: The cake gets its name from its appearance after baking.
The cream cheese mixture settles and gives the surface of the cake a craggy appearance like an earthquake has hit!
