Gooey Butter cakes

Okay - I resisted making these for a long time, 'cause I just don't do mixes; but - have been baking them for my little business, and they're walking out the door! Thank you, Paula Deen!

GOOEY BUTTER CAKES




CAKE:



1 18.25 oz box cake mix

1 egg

1 stick butter, melted



FILLING:



1 8-oz pkg softened cream cheese

2 eggs

1 tsp vanailla

2 cups powdered sugar

1 stick melted butter



Prehead oven to 350. Light grease a 9x13 baking pan.



Combine cake mix, egg, and butter, mix well. Pat into bottom of pan and set aside.

Beat cream cheese til smooth; add eggs and vanilla; add powdered sugar, mix well. Reduce speed and slowly pour in butter. Mix well. Pour filling onto cake and spread evenly. Bake for 40-50 minutes. Center will be a little gooey.



Variations:

Caramel Pecan yellow cake mix/pecans in filling mixture/drizzle caramel on top.

Chocolate chip either yellow or chocolate mix; stir in 1 cup chips into filling.

Peanut butter gooey use chocolate cake mix; add 1 cup peanut butter and an extra egg to filling.

Strawberry gooey strawberry cake/swirl 2/3 cup strawberry jam into filling.

OK, marm, you've convinced me to try them now, too! Like you I avoid mixes but have always been curious about these, especially the pumpkin.

Did you use any specific cake mix or just whatever is on sale? Are you making yours in the mini cake pans?

Usually, Duncan Hines is the most moist if you have to use the box mixes.

This sounds wonderful, too bad I'm trying to be good. When I lose the weight that I need and can maintain, this is one of the first I'll definately try. YUMMY!

Duncan Hines is what I use also.
I've not seen the strawberry butter cake...that sounds so good.
I love strawberries...when I was a little girl, I asked my grandma if they had strawberries in heaven.

I'm just using whatever mixes I find on sale - they're all pretty moist and 'gooey'!

The strawberry one is my own creation, I think; I haven't seen it on any of Paula's lists.

The butter pecan is wonderful! Haven't tried the pumpkin yet, we want to wait til fall for those.

PA, I've been splitting them up; I do one 9x9 pan that I cut into individual squares, and then 2 'mini pans', that are about 5x7 (the Hefty foil 'roll pans').

My favorite "cake from a mix" recipe uses a can of poppyseed filling - ever done one of those?

Sounds great. I'm always on the look out for easy desserts to take to potlucks and bbqs. I've added these to the list. Thanks!

Paula Deen is the queen of Gooey Butter Cakes. I think the pumpkin is my favorite!
