Gooey Butter Cake

This is a quick version of this famous cake from St. Louis, Missouri.

  • 1 (16 ounce) box confectioners' sugar
  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla extract


  1. Mix together the cake mix, 2 eggs and butter. Batter will be thick. Spread batter into a 13 x 9-inch greased and floured pan.
  2. Blend remaining 2 eggs, all but 2 tablespoons of the confectioners' sugar and cream cheese. Pour over batter.
  3. Bake at 300 degrees F for 15 minutes, then remove from oven and sprinkle the 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar on top.
  4. Return to oven and bake for 25 minutes longer. Do not over-bake or topping will not be gooey.
