Earthquake Cake

This recipe takes me back to my single days, in a condo in Bountiful, and my AWESOME roommates!
I miss those days, and the good times we had! The late nights, the snacks, the good cooking, and the good friendships that we had!
So, thank you Alicia for the delicious recipe!


2/3 cup coconut
2/3 cup nuts
2/3 cup chocolate chips
1 box chocolate cake, ingredients as necessary
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 lb powdered sugar
1 cube butter, softened

Preheat oven to 350*

In a greased 9 x 13 pan, pour coconut, nuts and chocolate chips
(I LOVE pecans, so that's what I could use walnuts as well)

In a seperate bowl, prepare cake batter as directed on box.

Pour cake batter on top of coconut, nuts and chocolate chips.
In a seperate bowl, combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and butter.

Drop by spoonfuls on cake mixture.
(I didn't use all the cream cheese, there's just not enough room for it all !)

Bake in oven for 45 minutes.

This is the cake as it just comes out of the oven.

This is the cake after it has cooled for about an hour or 2.
Doesn't it look all *earthquakie*!
This is so good! It is a good combination of cream cheese goodness
NOT TO MENTION the secret surprise at the bottom of the cake!


  1. I have to tell you the funniest story! I was having a lonely morning, so my bff from AZ popped on FB and said "Hey I know what will make you feel better, check out this website! Wouldn't it be fun to make this together!" So she sent me the link and IT WAS YOU!!! I just started laughing and asked if she saw this on my page.. anyway, I'm spreading the word for you, hopefully it works out :) !!!!

  2. Well, I hope you made will cheer ANYBODY up...except for the next day when you get on the scale...then depression ALL over again! Thanks for spreading the word!

  3. This looks like a good recipe! I'm sure you're right about the scales, especially when it's so good you can't have just one!

  4. That looks great! I think I know what we're having for our Sunday evening treat!

  5. You are welcome.

    Do you remember the time I made it for a get together and we snitched a few bites before the party. It is that good.

  6. This looks really cool! It worked because I have/had to do an Earthquake project where i had to make an earthquake cake but not on is it the name of this cake but it looks like nd earthquake to!

  7. If you like eating a bowl of sugar you will love this cake. Otherwise, don't make it.
