Gooey Butter Cake…or bars or whatever

As I was home alone today I couldn’t decide what to make myself for lunch. We went out to eat last night so I didn’t have any leftovers to chow down on, but I didn’t want to cook anything either. What I really wanted was something sweet, but I haven’t made my grocery store trip yet this week so I didn’t have a lot to work with. That’s when I remembered my grandma’s gooey butter cake and how it doesn’t take much to make it! Yes! Sweet Success!  Pun intended


You Will Need:

-1 box yellow cake mix

-1 stick of melted butter

-1 egg

-1lb powdered sugar

-8oz cream cheese

-1 teaspoon vanilla

-2 eggs



-Preheat oven to 350 degrees

-Mix together cake mix, melted butter, and 1 egg

-Grease a 9×13 pan and press the mix into the bottom of it

-Mix together powdered sugar, vanilla, cream cheese,and 2 eggs

-Spread over the top of the cake mix

-Bake for 40-45 minutes

-Let cool and cut into squares
