Gooey Butter Cake

I have been making Gooey Butter Cake since way before
Paula Dean was famous. So I don’t know where she got her recipe but I
think I had it first. It is so easy and everyone loves it.

See I have the ancient artifact to prove it!

It is Dani’s favorite (Mike’s too).  She requested it for her birthday this week.  So I made a double batch and we went over to the ER last night and surprised her. You are never to old for birthday treats at school or work.  So this one is for Dani and all her co-workers who are always there when we need them!

Gooey Butter Cake
1 boxed
yellow cake mix (I like Duncan Hines)
1/2 cup melted butter
1 egg beaten

With
a mixer fitted with a paddle, mix together above ingredients just until
combined and the dough starts to pull away from the side of the bowl.  About 1 minute on medium speed. 

Pat into a greased 9X13 pan.  Preferrable not a dark pan.  If it is decrease the oven temp to 325 degrees.

8 oz. cream
cheese
2 eggs
4 cups powdered sugar

Beat together for 4 minutes. Scraping down sides once.  Will turn a lighter color.  Pour over bottom layer.
Bake at 350 for 35 minutes. Will be golden brown over most of the top.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Cool completely before cutting.  Store in an airtight container.  Does not need to be refrigerated.

(Sorry for the bad picture.  I always forget to take a picture of the finished project.  This was a quicky with my cell phone. )

    Cindy… the first time I had this cake, I almost cried it was so good. Never got the recipe from my friend for fear I would make it and eat it all by myself! Let's meet for coffee when the weather get warmer!

    It is yummy. Thanks for the recipe. Love the picture of your ancient recipe card. I love when your church cookbook opens right to the one or two pages you actually use because of the "ingredients" splattered on it.

    You are right along with me on the recipe. I made this long before she came out with it too. Love the picture of the recipe. You must be in my generation…he! he!
