  • Prepare cake batter according to package directions; set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add eggs; beat on low speed, just until combined.
  • Pour half the cake batter into a greased 9x13 pan; gently pour cream cheese mixture over batter. Gently spoon remaining batter over top, spreading to edge of pan.
  • Bake at 325F for 70-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack for 1 hour.
  • FROSTING: Combine sugar, milk, butter, and egg yolks in a heavy saucepan. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until thickened.
  • Remove from heat, stir in vanilla and fold in coconut and pecans. Cool until frosting reaches spreading consistency. Frost cooled cake.
  • Refrigerate leftovers.
