Get ready to eat an entire cake in a 24-hour time span, because once you eat one piece of Trista Sutter’s favorite Gooey Butter Cake from Paula Deen, it’s all over — it’s that good. This is definitely an indulgence that you can only make for your kiddos every once in a while, but hey, everything in moderation right? To create this cake of gooey goodness you need 1 box yellow cake mix, 1 egg, and 1 stick melted butter. The filling calls for 8 ounces cream cheese, 2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 stick melted butter, and 2 cups powdered sugar. Butter-Cake Preheat the oven the 350 degrees. Combine the cake mix, egg, and melted butter together in a bowl with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13×9 inch baking pan. Next, beat the cream cheese and eggs together until smooth. Add the vanilla, butter, and powdered sugar; mix well. Spread the mixture over the cake batter evenly and bake for 40-50 minutes. Don’t overbake it — you want the center to be a little gooey! butter-cake-frosting Allow to cool for 5-7 minutes and cut into slices.
