Recipe: Gooey Butter Cake

Fridays are wonderful for many reasons but they are especially good when it's Eat Day at my school. Today's theme was sweets and treats Halloween and I made Gooey Butter Cake, a recipe Brian's wonderful cousin Pam gave me at my kitchen wedding shower. I thought that the word "gooey" made for a good Halloween treat to fit the theme!

Gooey Butter Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, softened
8 ounces cream cheese
4 eggs
1 pound box powdered sugar

Using mixer, combine cake mix, butter and 2 eggs. The batter will be very sticky and difficulty to work with. Press into 9x13 greased baking dish. Meanwhile, mix the cream cheese and remaining 2 eggs together. While mixer is running, mix in all but 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar. When mixture is creamy, pour batter in pan and bake for 35-40 minutes in an 350 degree oven. Edges should be brown. Cool cake and sprinkle top with powdered sugar.
