Ooey Gooey Butter Cake Bars

     The other day I was on Pinterest...again, looking for a great dessert recipe when I came across a recipe on Momofuku's Butter Cake Bars on this fabulous blog Some Kitchen Stories full of amazing recipes and delicious pictures.  I just had to try these out, you should too they are A-MAZ-ING!  But, be warned they are quite rich and you will DEFINITELY need a glass of milk!

Here's how to make them:



Ingredients

1 box of yellow cake mix (1 pound)
4 oz of unsalted butter, melted
3 eggs
8 oz of cream cheese, softened
1 pound (16oz) of powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract


Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, line an 8 x 8 pan with parchment paper.
Make the base first by mixing the cake mix, butter, and 1 egg in an electric mixer till combined.


Pat the cake mixture into the pan, create an even layer.


Make the ooey gooey layer by creaming together the softened 
cream cheese, powdered sugar, 2 eggs, and vanilla.



Then pour the gooey layer over the cake layer, spread to the edges.


Bake for 45 minutes or until edges are golden brown, 
center should be creamy yet solid consistency like cheesecake.


Cool completely in pan before cutting into 1-inch squares with clean, dry knife.  


For best square results, put them in the freezer to chill before slicing.


Enjoy!!
