You will surely want to try this Chocolate Upside Down Cake. There won’t be any leftovers with this one around! Try it and see!
Chocolate Upside Down Cake
I got this recipe a few years ago from a former co-worker. I had almost forgotten about it until I was unpacking (Yes, I still have a few things to unpack from our move in March/April) and ran across it. I decided to go ahead and make it since I had all the ingredients on hand. You’re sure to love it! Enjoy!

Chocolate Upside Down Cake
I got this recipe a few years ago from a former co-worker. I had almost forgotten about it until I was unpacking (Yes, I still have a few things to unpack from our move in March/April) and ran across it. I decided to go ahead and make it since I had all the ingredients on hand. It's a different take on the traditional German Chocolate Cake.
- 1 1/4 cups water
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup flaked coconut
- 2 cups (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup chopped pecans
- 2 cups miniature marshmallows
- 1 package (18 1/4 oz.) German chocolate cake mix
- Ingredients listed on the cake mix
- Preheat oven to 350° F. Grease a Bundt pan and set aside.
- In a small saucepan, heat water and butter until butter is melted. Stir in brown sugar and mix well. Pour into Bundt pan. Sprinkle with coconut, chocolate, pecans and marshmallows.
- Prepare cake batter according to package directions. Carefully pour over the marshmallows. Bake according to the directions on the box for a Bundt cake or until a toothpick inserted near the center tests clean.
- Cool 5-10 minutes before inverting onto a serving platter.

i love german chocolate cake! more specifically, i love the goo that goes between the layers of a traditional one but that you've put on top (or is it on the bottom?). 🙂

Came over from Seven Alive. I really, really should not have seen this recipe. I love German chocolate cake and especially, as Grace above put it, the goo!
My mom always want German Chocolate cake for her birthday. I'll have to pin this to remember for next year. I'd love it if you shared this over at my link party. http://acraftycook.blogspot.com/2012/08/1-month-of-fun-august-link-party.html

Jamie my 2 favorite cakes are german chocolate cake and pineapple up-side-down cake! Now I can combine the idea of both. Thanks for sharing, looking forward to trying it for a congregation picnic!
Thanks for sharing at Frugal Treasures Tuesday each week and you've been FEATURED this week for this scrumptuous sweet! Hope you'll share again this week. : )
not sure what I did wrong but my cake was a HUGE FLOP…..when I turned it over it was a wet sloppy mess and the cake cracked in several places!!!! Advise please, it tasted great, looked awful.
Jamie @ Love Bakes Good Cakes
Hmmmm ….. I've never had that problem and I'm so sorry you did :/ First, I would make sure the pan is greased very well …. Second, I would make sure the chocolate chips and marshmallows had a few minutes to "set up" before flipping it over. Maybe try 10-15 minutes before flipping? I hope this helps you!
