It’s the hap, happiest season of all! But it doesn’t happen without a lot of effort. Rushing there, hurrying there…busy, busy, busy! That’s why this week we decided to make a simple, yet oh-so-divine treat. Not just gooey butter cake, but OOEY GOOEY BUTTER CAKE! This recipe only needs a few ingredients and you can whip it up in no time, which still leaves time for shopping, wrapping, tree trimming…and everything else on your list.
Ooey Gooey Butter Cake
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1/2 cup butter, melted
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the gooey topping:
- 1 (8oz) package cream cheese, softened
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Instructions: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix cake mix, melted butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla, & 2 eggs together. Pat into a greased 9×13 baker. Beat cream cheese, 2 eggs, & 2 teaspoons vanilla extract together until smooth & creamy. Spread on top of cake batter crust. Bake for 40 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes on a wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Cake will sink a little as it cools.
