Ooey Gooey Butter Cake

Unfortunately I don't have a picture of this one, but that's only because we devoured this before I had a chance.  It's exactly what the name describes and being a Paula Deen recipe the butter definitely plays a big role in the flavor.  When it comes down to it I still prefer chocolate desserts, but it was still ooey gooey yumminess as I've said before if it has cream cheese in it I'm in.  I may just make a chocolate version of it next time!

Ooey Gooey Butter Cake
Paula Deen

1 box butter recipe cake mix
1 stick or 1/2 cup butter, melted
1 egg

1 8oz package cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 16oz box or 2 cups powdered sugar
1 stick or 1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350.  Lightly grease 9x 13 baking dish.  
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine 1 egg, cake mix and butter.  Pat into the bottom of the dish evenly and set aside.

In the mixer beat cream cheese until smooth then add eggs and vanilla.  Add powdered sugar and beat well then slowly pour in butter.  Pour mixture over cake and spread evenly.  Bake for about 30-40 min, until the top is lightly golden brown. 9 Don't be afraid to make a judgment call on the bake time though since it is supposed to be a little gooey in the middle.  Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
