Cake Mix Butter Cake Recipe
This Butter Cake recipe is delicious and easy to make. It’s made with a box of cake mix and 4 other ingredients (butter, eggs, cream cheese, powdered sugar). It only takes about 10 minutes to put together before it goes into the oven to bake.
The bottom layer is the cake layer, while the top layer is that ooey gooey cream cheese layer which will definitely be everyone’s favorite.
What Makes it so Ooey Gooey?
When you bake this you might think it’s not done after the 55 minutes of baking time, but trust me it is. This cake is extremely moist and ooey gooey, and that’s because of the top layer of cream cheese mixed with powdered sugar.
After you remove the cake from the oven, allow to cool before cutting slices. As you can see, the cake will hold it’s shape and doesn’t fall apart while still being super ooey gooey!
How to Make
First, make sure to spray a 8×8 baking dish with nonstick spray to prevent the cake from sticking.
Make the top layer by mixing cream cheese, powdered sugar and eggs together and then spreading on top.
Bake for 55 minutes. Allow to cool before cutting into it as this will prevent it from falling apart when you serve.
You can cut this cake into however amount of slices you want. I usually do 9 or 12, but you can even do more as a little slice goes a long way.
