Gluten Free Ooey Gooey Butter Cake Recipe

Updated on October 5, 2016
3.8 stars from 29 ratings of Gluten Free Ooey Gooey Butter Cake

My husband was diagnosed with Celiac disease about 4 years ago. Since then, it has been a learning process on not only which foods he can eat but on what also tastes good. I am always searching for new, easy to make recipes that I can cook for him. My aunt made this recipe while we were on vacation and it was so good I had to share.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: 1 delicious cake


  • 1 box Betty Crocker Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 sm box Powdered Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • 8oz Package Cream Cheese
  • 1 Stick Butter, Softened, Not Melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. For the bottom layer, combine the cake mix, butter, and 2 eggs. Once all the ingredients are evenly mixed, spoon batter onto the bottom of the cake pan.
  3. For the top layer, combine the powdered sugar, cream cheese, and 2 eggs. Stir until smooth and pour over the bottom layer.
  4. Bake for 25-35 minutes until a golden brown color. The middle should be a little gooey.
  5. Once the cake is done cooking, sprinkle powdered sugar on the top and enjoy!

      Audrey, I use the Udi's frozen pizza crust and they are delicious. They seem to be the best we could find.

      Thanks Rebecca!

      I am so excited that you tried it, icmn91! GF cakes do tend to do random things when cooking.

      Was deliciously yummy!! I'll have to make some more. Though I noticed it did sink in the middle, which lots of GF cakes seem to do. Perhaps I'll stir it less next time.

      But definitely 'more'ish!!

      Looks Yum! I'll have to try it for sure. I've been looking for some good gluten free recipes to help get me over the anger I have at my university college for illegally feeding me gluten (which I hubbed about and would love it if people here would leave their thoughts on the issue).

      I'll plan to bake it tomorrow and hopefully come back and tell you how it goes!! ;)

      Jools, I remember when my husband, sister-in-law, and mother-in-law were all diagnosed. There was a definite learning curve and it was a challenge learning how to cook everything at first. The good news is there are a lot more gluten free products available now than there was back then. Thanks for the comment!

      Jen, any recipe with the word 'gooey' in it as an adjective is going to get my vote :o) My niece and brother in law were recently diagnosed as celiac and for my poor sister it has been a steep learning curve! I have bookmarked this to print it off later for her - great recipe, sounds yummy!

      Yum! That could work as a dessert or even a breakfast coffee cake - I'll take any excuse for cake! Thanks for the recipe.
