gooey buttercake

I have been making this cake for almost 30 years. The gooey buttercake is an easy cake to make. I am continually surprised how this simple cake can render adults speechless and always has them reaching for another piece.

Gooey Buttercake

1 box of yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 stick of butter, melted

8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
16 ounces of confectioners sugar
1 stick of butter, melted

Preheat the oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 13x9x2 inch baking pan.

In the bowl of an electric mixer combine the cake mix, 1 egg, and 1 stick of the melted butter. This will form a dough-like consistency. Evenly pat this mixture into the bottom of your pan and set aside.

With an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese, eggs, vanilla, sugar and 1 stick of melted butter. Pour this creamy filling mixture on top of the cake base and spread evenly.

Bake for 40 to 50 minutes.

Remove from oven and cool completely before cutting into squares.
