Ooey Gooey Butter Cake


1 (16.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter, melted, divided
3 eggs, divided
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (16-ounce) package confectioners' sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, with an electric mixer, beat cake mix, 1/2 cup butter, and 1 egg. Lightly press mixture into baking dish.

In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese, the remaining eggs, the vanilla, and remaining butter. Slowly beat in confectioners' sugar until thoroughly mixed. Spread mixture over batter.

Bake 45 to 50 minutes, or until golden on top. Make sure not to overbake; center should be a little gooey.
