Gooey Butter Bars

This recipe has been around the web for awhile, so I cannot take credit for its creation. In fact, I’m quite sure Paula Deen has made this popular as it sure does contain a lot of “butta”.  My recipe has listed as the source: Recipe-A-Day 12/28/1999.

This is my oldest daughter’s most requested birthday “cake”. It really isn’t a cake, more of a bar cookie.

Gooey Butter Bars

  • 1 box of butter cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 8 oz package of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pound powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13x2 inch cake pan and set aside

In a large mixing bowl, add cake mix, 1 egg and 1 stick of butter that has been melted. Cream together well and press into the bottom of the cake pan. This will be a very stiff batter.

Mix the softened cream cheese, remaining 2 eggs, powdered sugar and remaining 1 stick of butter that has been melted together in a large mixing bowl (I use the same bowl for both steps). Mix until fluffy. Pour over the batter in the cake pan.

Bake for 40-50 minutes without opening the oven door. When done, the cake will appear very fluffy.

After the cake cools, sprinkle it with a dusting of powdered sugar.
