Love Gooey Butter Cake? Try this Nieman Marcus cake with cream cheese frosting for a nice change. Thanks to Sydni for sharing this recipe.
If you are a fan of the gooey butter cake, you will enjoy this recipe. This style of cake uses a cake mix, a couple of eggs, and melted butter, this is mixed together, and baked. The cake will form a delicate crust that may brown. This recipe is unlike some of the others, this one features a light cream cheese frosting to top this classic cake recipe.
If you are a novice to cake baking this is a simple cake to prepare. For this recipe I really like to use the Duncan Hines Butter Recipe cake mix. I like the flavor of this cake. In reality you could use any cake mix that you desire, but in my experience this is the one that my company enjoys the most.
