St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake began as an accident in the kitchen and turned into a St. Louis tradition with which we fell in Love when we lived there.

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 box yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1 - 8 oz. package of cream cheese
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups of powdered sugar

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Lightly grease 9x13 cake pan (or spray with Pam).
3. Empty cake mix into a large bowl.
4. Stir in melted butter and one egg.
5. Press mixture into pan.
6. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese, vanilla extract, powdered sugar and the remaining two eggs.
7. Beat on medium high for three minutes.
8. Spread over top of the cake mixture.
9. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes until golden brown on top.
10. Allow cake to cool. Dust top with confectioners sugar.
Do not overbake - cake will be gooey on the top.
