Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Melt the 3 tablespoons butter in a 9x1-1/2-inch round baking pan. Stir in the 1/2 cup brown sugar and the water. Sprinkle coconut and pecans in the pan. Set pan aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, the 1/4 cup brown sugar, and the baking powder. Add milk, the 1/4 cup butter, the eggs, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute. By hand, stir in 1/2 cup of the chocolate pieces. Spread batter into the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until cake feels firm in center when lightly touched. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Loose sides; invert onto a plate. Immediately sprinkle remaining miniature chocolate pieces over the topping. Let stand about 30 minutes before slicing. Serve warm.

    So funny....I wanted to find a "different " recipe using chocolate chips and coconut. I usually just search through GR. I thought that I'd check out the whole scene and just Google those ingredients to see what I'd find out there in the bigger world wide web. The recipe that came up was this one! A wonderful Group Recipes one!!!

    BTW, I made this last night...at about 10 p.m. LOL It is so good hot, but it's so good cold this morning, too!

    Oh, I should also tell you that I doubled the recipe and made it in a 9x13 pan. it turned out great!

    I'm thinking that you'd like to try my Rich Chocolate cake... It has a bag of ch. chips in it, too!

    This sounds sooo good, but I have a question. I don't eat coconuts. I have a childhood complex. lol Will leaving it out affect it badly?
