This recipe tastes so good I am almost tempted to start back on the good old Kiwi tradition of morning tea at 10am and afternoon tea at 3pm so I can have an extra two pieces per day.
1 pkg. German chocolate cake mix
½ cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup softened butter or margarine
2 (8oz ) pkgs cream cheese
¾ cup sugar
2 tsp. Vanilla
2 cups sour cream
¼ cup sugar
1 T. vanilla
Heat oven to 350F In large mixer bowl blend cake mix, coconut, butter and 1 egg until mixture is crumbly.
Press very lightly in ungreased baking pan 13 x 8 x 2 inches.
Beat cream cheese, 2 eggs, ¾ cup sugar and 2tsp. Vanilla until smooth and fluffy.
Spread over cake mixture. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until top is firm in center.
Mix sour cream, ¼ cup sugar and 1 tablespoon vanilla until smooth.
Spread over the cheesecake: cool.
Refrigerate at least 8 hours.
Makes 20 servings.
