Gooey Butter Cake

in #food4 years ago

Who doesn't love this St. Louis favorite??  Gooey butter cake is so rich and creamy, it just melts in the mouth!


  • 1 box Yellow Cake Mix
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1 stick Butter or Margarine, melted
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 (8 oz) package Cream Cheese
  • 1 pound Powdered Sugar


  1. Spray 9 x 13 inch pan.
  2. Combine cake mix, 1 egg and butter for the crust.  Spread in the bottom of the pan.
  3. In another bowl, mix 3 eggs, vanilla and cream cheese.  Once creamed together, slowly mix in the powdered sugar (set aside a bit to sprinkle on top at the end, if desired).
  4. Pour mixture over crust. 
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
  6. Optional: Once cooled, sprinkle a dusting of powdered sugar over cake.


  • This recipe can be made healthier by replacing regular cream cheese with either Neufchâtel cheese or reduced fat cream cheese.
  • Suggested twists to this recipe (for those who want to experiment!):
    • Add chocolate chips to crust, topping, or both.
    • Add coconut flakes to cream cheese mixture.
