gooey butter cake

Gooey butter cake is a Midwestern classic! Dense cake base with a gooey top and a dusting of powdered sugar – this is one perfect cake.

Beat together yellow cake mix, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla.


Press the mixture into the bottom of a well-lined 13x9-inch pan.


Beat together cream cheese, eggs, and more vanilla. Slowly add powdered sugar.


Pour this mix over the cake base and bake for about 40 minutes, until golden.


Let cake cool. Slice, dust with powdered sugar, and serve.
