Coconut Cream Cheese Cake

I like the dense texture of this cake together with the creaminess of the cream cheese frosting, and the crunchiness of the toasted coconut. IF YOU DON'T LIKE DENSE CAKES, THIS IS NOT THE CAKE FOR YOU.!!

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Prepare a 9 x 13 pan with non stick cooking spray. FOR CAKE: Cream together butter, cream cheese and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, vanilla and then mix in flour. Spread batter into prepared pan. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until wooden pick comes out clean. Cool on cooling rack FROSTING: Beat together butter, cheese, vanilla and add sugar. Mix until well blended. You can now toast coconut. I toast mine in a lighty sprayed skillet and keep tossing until golden. You can also place coconut on a baking sheet and toast in oven, turning frequently so not to burn. Top cake with frosting and coconut then cut cooled cake into 24 squares. Note: Best kept refrigerated.
