Step 1

1.Preheat oven to 350 Degrees and spray a 9X13 rectangular pan with baking
spray and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, pour in the cake mix, add the egg, and the melted butter and stir together with a wooden spoon. Once well mixed, pat into the bottom of
the 9X13 rectangular pan. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, cream the cream cheese until smooth and add in the eggs
one at a time creaming into the cream cheese after adding into the bowl.
Add the vanilla and coconut extract, lemon juice, powdered sugar, and
melted butter. Pour the filling on top of the cake mix.
4. For the topping: Mix in the brown and white sugar, sweetened coconut, and
stir in the butter. Add the flour to the mix and stir. The topping will become
very crumbly. Turn to wax or parchment paper and let it sit for about 10­-15
minutes so the crumbs can dry out a bit. Sprinkle the crumbs on top of the
filling ( I didn't use all the crumbs for my personal taste). Bake in the oven for 35-­40 minutes. Make sure not to over bake as the center won't be as gooey.

Allow to cool and cut into squares.
