Easy to put together, and tastes delicious. This is a great cake. I promise this one will go fast.
Gooey Butter Cake
Boxed cake mix makes a quick and easy "crust" for this sweet cake.
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 stick butter
- 2 eggs, slightly beaten
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1 pound powdered sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
Blend cake mix, butter, and eggs together well in medium mixing bowl until crumbly but moist. Pat mixture evenly over bottom of Pam sprayed jelly roll pan. Pat it lightly but evenly.
Set aside while you preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare the filling.
Combine cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla mix well in a 2-qt bowl, beating with mixer on medium speed until smooth. (About 5 minutes beating time.)
Pour over cake mix layer. Place on center rack of the oven and bake at 350 degrees, about 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown and top looks like a nicely baked cheesecake would.
Cool in pan on rack 1 hour. Cut into neat serving squares and refrigerate, covered in plastic wrap to serve within a few days.
