Ooey Gooey Satisfying Butter Cake

I spent the morning working outside, doing all the weeding, trimming, sweeping, raking and mowing that I’d neglected to do because of Mardi Gras. I came in cold and craving sweet but also tired and needing something easy. Here is another use for a box of yellow cake mix that isn’t a traditional cake but rather bars. My pan was slightly larger than a 9×13 and it is better to err on the side of shorter rather than longer. I ended up with a fairly thin cake this time.

cakey cake

1 (18 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter, melted
3 eggs
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
16 ounces powdered sugar
Mix cake mix, melted butter and one egg. Pat into 13×9 inch pan.

In a separate bowl beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Add the two remaining eggs to cream cheese and mix well. Add powdered sugar and beat until lumps are gone. Pour this mixture over cake in pan.

Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes or until topping is golden. Allow to cool somewhat to set topping (slides off when warm).
