Gooey Cake

9 Aug

Be warned that this dessert is not for the faint of heart, it’s seriously sweet and rich…and oh-so-good.  I made it for my Momma’s birthday; not a bite survived.

1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick of oleo – room temperature (I used butter)
4 eggs (2 & 2)
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese softened
2 cups powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 350.  Mix cake mix, oleo (butter), and 2 eggs together.  Pour into a 9×13 inch greased pan.  Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, and 2 eggs together.  Spread on top of the other layer.  Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until edges are golden brown.

Holly’s notes: If you don’t have yellow cake mix, feel free to substitute other flavors. The result is still delicious! Set out the butter a few hours ahead to soften it, but if you forget just microwave it for 10-15 seconds.  Lastly, I’ve made this with and without using a hand mixer—the end result tastes great either way, but it’s much easier with the mixer! Enjoy!
