Love Paula Deens Recipe

Gooey Butter Cake By Paula Deen



8 Tablespoons butter, melted

1(18 1/4-ounce)package yellow cake mix


1(8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (16-ounce)box powder sugar


preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the egg in with the cake mix and beat well with an electric mixer. Spread the mixture or pat it into a slightly greased 13 by 9 in. pan.

Filling: In a larger bowl, cream the cream cheese until it is soft, then add eggs, butter and vanilla, beat together well. Add the powdered sugar. Spread the mixture on top of the cake batter and bake for about 40-50 minutes and eye ball it so that it doesn't over bake. You want the middle part to be kind of gooey and this will make the cake very moist.

Easy recipe to make but very good.

My husbands favorite dessert is red velvet cake. I have tried Bobby Flays and it is pretty good. He may love Paula's a little more since she uses his favorite ingredient "butter".
