Directions:
Line a 12 inch Dutch Oven (DO) with heavy foil and spray with a nonstick cooking spray. Pour cake batter into the DO. In a baggy, squish the cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar together. Cut one end of the baggy and squeeze out dollups of cream cheese mixture into batter. Sprinkle the pecans and coconut over the top. Put the lid on your DO and bake in the oven at 350 for approx. 40 minutes. After removing from the oven let rest for 15 minutes. Carefully pull the cake out by lifting the tinfoil. Set on a flat surface and watch the cake "crack" Serve cake on the tinfoil.

Personal Notes:
I use this recipe when we do outdoor cooking with charcoal briquettes instead of the conventional oven. To create 350 from briquettes, take the diameter of the DO and add 2 more briquettes to the top of the lid and 2 less underneath the DO. So a 12 inch DO would use 14 briquettes on top, and 10 underneath.
