Gooey Buttercake

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.

    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.
