Ooey Gooey Butter Cakes

This is one of those ultra simple, ultra quick recipes that is great to whip up real quick to take to a big get-together. I was given this recipe by a co-worker who made them several times to bring to work. Everyone loved them. The consistency of these is similar to a cookie bar.

Why not make a batch of these to take to your next function?

Ooey Gooey Butter Cakes Recipe

  • 1 box (18.25 oz) yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick of melted butter (4 ounces)
  • 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 lb. of powdered sugar
  • 1 stick of melted butter

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a 13 x 9 baking dish.

Combine the cake mix, egg and 1 stick of butter and mix well with a hand mixer. Pat this mixture into the bottom of the pan and set it aside.

Beat the cream cheese, eggs and vanilla with the hand mixer. Dump the powdered sugar into the mixture beating it well. On a low speed, begin to pour in the final stick of melted butter.

Pour the filling over the cake mixture and spread evenly. Bake for about 30-35 minutes.

I Guess that I'm stuck with making them myself once I translate the recipe into Kiwi. -Bugger, there goes the diet again.

All the best for Christmas,

All those extra calories will come in handy in the next couple of months to build up a nice layer of fat in order to keep warm. At least that's what I tell myself when mixing up sugar, butter, eggs and flour. Thanks for the recipe!

I am gonna have to try these right after I get my cholesterol checked - then I have a whole year to get it back to normal again. They sound just my kind of cake. when you say stick of butter, is that the same as an English stick of butter, 8 ounces????

Hi Georgina, actually a stick of butter in the US is 4 ounces. Your Ooey Gooey cake would be really ooey gooey with twice the butter! Thanks for asking!

What is the equivalent of 1lb of powdered sugar in cups?

Lisa, your answer can be found here: http://www.angelfire.com/bc/incredible/weightmeasu...

In the US, powdered sugar is sold in one pound packages so there is no need to measure it.
