Gooey Butter Bars

My grandmother has made this recipe for 50+ years. We call it “buttermilk cake”. My friends call it “crack cake” because every time I make it for an event they inhale it in 10 minutes.

Ingredients :
  • 1 box of yellow cake mix (1 pound)
  • 4 ounces of butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pound (16 ounces) of powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract

Directions :
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8 x 8 inch pan with parchment paper.
  2. Make the base first: mix together cake mix, butter and 1 egg.
  3. Pat into pan, create an even layer.
  4. Make the ooey gooey layer: Cream together the cream cheese, 2 eggs, sugar and vanilla.
  5. Pour gooey layer over cake layer, spread to edges.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes* or until edges are golden brown, center should be a creamy yet solid consistency like cheesecake or heaven. 
  7. Cool completely in pan before cutting into 1-inch sqaures with a clean, dry knife. 
  8. For best square results, pop into freezer and chill before slicing.
