This cake has been used by my family since before I can remember, the only difference is that we only use 2 cups of sugar or 1 box. This is the reason why everyone thought it was too sweet. And our recipe calls for only 1 egg in the cream cheese part, but I tried it with 2 and it tasted the same but was much easier to spread on the 1st layer. This is a family tradition during Thanksgiving and Christmas!


I used LEMON CAKE MIX - added chopped PECANS to the cake mixture, and even added some to the top of the cake mixture (we like pecans). I then put a thin layer of sweetened COCONUT on top of the chopped pecans, then the cream cheese layer. To the cream cheese mixture I used TWO PKGS of cream cheese (to make it more cream cheesey and less sweet) less powder sugar probably 2 1/2 cups (since the coconut was sweet) AND I added ALMOND extract (2 TBLBS) to the cream cheese mixture. Let me tell you - it was GOOD !!!!! My daughter (who mostly likes chocolate) LOVED IT!!!! Will DEFINITELY MAKE THIS ONE AGAIN! THANK YOU !


I followed "Kerri's" directions and it came out wonderful. (Worthy of it's own recipe with her changes.) I cut this into squares and took it to a UFC Fight Night gathering with a bunch of friends and they loved it - just the right amount of sweet and the coconut and nuts give it a nice boost! I pressed the "crust" into the pan by covering it in waxed paper. It was really easy that way.
