Gooey Butter Cheesecake


  • 1 (2-layer) yellow cake mix with pudding
  • 4 eggs, divided
  • 2 sticks (1 cup) butter or margarine, melted, divided
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (1 pound) box powdered sugar, sifted


  1. Melt 1 stick butter in 11 x 9-inch baking pan. Spread around to coat evenly.
  2. Pour remaining stick of melted butter into mixing bowl; add 2 eggs and beat.
  3. Add cake mix and blend thoroughly. Batter will be very thick. Spread batter in buttered pan.
  4. Mix together remaining 1 stick butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and the remaining 2 eggs, and pour over cake batter:
  5. Bake at 325 degrees F for 40 to 45 minutes.

To keep bottom from browning too much, place another cake pan with water in it on lower rack. Bake until sides are firm, middle will still be wiggly. Cake will rise and then fall in the middle when it is cooled. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
