  • 1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist German chocolate cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 container Betty Crocker Rich & Creamy coconut pecan frosting
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons Gold Medal all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • Caramel topping, if desired
  • Sweetened whipped cream, if desired
  • Pecan halves, if desired
  • Toasted coconut, if desired


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees F for dark and nonstick pan).
  2. In large bowl, stir together dry cake mix and butter.
  3. Press evenly into ungreased 13 x 9-inch pan.
  4. Using same bowl, stir frosting, milk, flour and egg until blended.
  5. Pour evenly over mixture in pan.
  6. Bake for 43 to 47 minutes or until set. It is "set" when it’s firm and barely jiggles when the pan is moved.
  7. Serve warm or cool. Top each serving with remaining ingredients.
  8. Store covered in refrigerator.
