    Dragonfly AZ's Note:

    Got this from the cake mix doctor, and it has quickly become one of my favorites. It has 3 layers that meld together to make the perfect cake.

      I've been wanting to try this recipe for 2 weeks! It was worth the wait. I used two 9 inch square pans and put wax paper on the bottom. I added some 1/2 cup of coconut to the filling and piped it inside the poured batter. It made the ooey-gooey surprise inside. Thanks!

      Yummy! The cream cheese topping bakes down into the bottom, so it's on top when you turn it over. The pecans add a wonderful crunch and flavor, and next time I will double the amount. This is a great twist on an old favorite. Thanks for sharing the recipe. :)
