Paula Deen's Gooey Butter Cake Recipe...fantastic!

Wow wow wow....I made this recipe this week and it was awesome.  It got awesome reviews from the WHOLE family :)  Highly recommended, but ya' might want to undo the button on your jeans cause of all of the butter in this recipe ;)
Our household has now had the butter cake from Red Robin, California Pizza Kitchen and Paula Deen...This recipe from Paula wins HANDS DOWN!!

Sorry for the bad lighting in my photos too - just didn't have time to do anything more than take a quick pic!  (BTW - I can't believe they say servings are 6-8...those pieces must be HUGE!)
For those wondering, I baked mine for 50 minutes and it was most likely a little "overbaked", but we like it this way :)

Here it is ready for the oven.......
And here it is right after the oven and someone (who will remain nameless) snatched a quick piece before I could even get a picture!! 

Recipe:  Paula Deen Gooey Butter Cake
Servings: 6 to 8 servings
Prep Time: 30 min
Cook Time: 40 min
Difficulty: Easy


1 18 1/4-ounce package yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 tablespoons butter, melted

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 16-ounce box powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter and beat together.
Next, add the powdered sugar and mix well. Spread over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little gooey.
