Gooey Butter Cake

I love to watch Paula Dean make all of her buttery-goodness southern traditional treats and always had a craving for that Gooey Butter Cake. Butter, powdered sugar...more butter. I knew it had to taste spectacular.

Since my Grandpa comes over for our weekly Sunday dinner, I thought that would be the perfect time to test out this cake. It was a hit!! My Grandpa requested a few pieces to take home, and even Channa loved it and took some to work the next day..."for his breakfast". It is rich and buttery, and gooey, and well, just plain wonderful!

Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 40 min
Ingredients (12 servings)
    Cake Crust
    • 1 package yellow cake mix, dry
    • 1 egg
    • 8 tbsp butter, melted
    Gooey Filling
    • 1-8oz package cream cheese, softened
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 8 tbsp butter, melted
    • 1 lb. powdered sugar
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    Lightly grease the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.
    (I like to use 8x11 to make it a bit thicker)
    Combine the cake mix, egg and butter.
    Pat into the bottom of the baking dish.
    In a large bowl beat cream cheese until smooth.
    Beat in the eggs, vanilla and butter.
    Add powdered sugar and mix well until well combined.
    Spread over the cake batter in the dish.
    Bake for 40 minutes or so, the middle of the filling should remain gooey. So don't over bake.
    Remove to cooling rack.
    Cut and serve.
