This sweet and gooey cake is too much to handle! Perfectly sweet and freaking delicious I can eat it in just one sitting. This is a pretty easy cake to make and requires only six simple ingredients that are already on hand. My daughter is obsessed with this dense, flat cake. She can eat the whole thing by herself! This cake is insanely good she always fights us for the last piece!
Whenever I have guests, they always request this gooey butter cake. And asked me every time if they can take home at least a piece each! They love this cake so much I have to make two or three of this.
1 yellow butter cake mix (just the cake mix)
1/2 cup butter melted
8 oz cream cheese softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups powdered sugar plus more for dusting if desired
How to Make Gooey Butter Cake
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Then, grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish.
Step 3: In a bowl, combine the cake mix, melted butter, and egg.
Step 4: Transfer and gently tap in the bottom of the prepared pan.
Step 5: Beat the cream cheese with a stand or hand mixer until smooth and lump-free. Adjust the mixer to low, then, add the eggs one at a time and continue to beat until well combined.
Step 6: Stir in the vanilla extract, then, the powdered sugar in various increments beating just until combined.
Step 7: Then, pour the mixture over the cake mix layer and make sure to not mix.
Step 8: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.
Step 9: Once done, remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool. Sprinkle the cooled cake with some powdered sugar if preferred. Enjoy!
