Gooey Butter Cake

This is Paula Deen’s classic Gooey Butter Cake—enjoy!


  • 1 standard package yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted


  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 16-ounce box powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

Prepare Filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter and beat together.

Next, add the powdered sugar and mix well. Spread over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little gooey.

Servings: 6 to 8 servings; Prep Time: 30 min; Cook Time: 40 min

Variations: try this with lemon cake mix or with pumpkin for the holidays.
