Easy Gooey Butter Cake Recipe

Made this for my Mother's of Preschoolers Group (MOPS) and it was a big hit!

Easy Butter Cake Recipe Ala Paula Deen

1 Box (18 1/4 Ounces) yellow cake mix
1 Large Egg
8 Tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, at room temperature
2 Large Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
8 Tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted
1 Box (16 ounces) confectioner's sugar--I had a large bag and ended up using a little less than 4 cups.

Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.

Grease a 13 X 9 baking pan with butter or (2) 8 X 8 square pans.

For the Cake: In a large bowl mix: cake mix, egg, melted butter with a large spoon until combined.

Scrape the batter into pan and smooth out. I pushed it down with my fingers.

For the filling: Using hand mixer or paddle attachment with stand alone mixer... beat the cream cheese on medium speed until smooth.

Add the eggs and vanilla beat well. Add the melted butter and beat until combined. Slowly add confectioner's sugar 1/4 cup at a time and beat well after each addition.

 Using spatula spread the filling over the cake mixture.

Bake for 40-50 minutes. In the two square pans I usually bake for 40 minutes.
The center of the cake will be gooey. Check with toothpick there will be a few wet crumbs left on it.

This came out darker around the edges than it usually does. I didn't hear the timer go off so it baked a little longer than usual. I couldn't help it I was snuggling with the cutest toddler in the world!
