When we visited Paula Deen's restaurant in Savannah, I had this great, simple dessert. It was delicious. I think they served it with a bit of whipped cream or ice cream.
It's easy as 1-2-3 to make and oh so yummy! In a bind with unexpected guests and wanting to serve something with coffee? This is the ticket, and most people have the simple ingredients around the house. I will say that it should be eaten in moderation for those watching their waistlines ~ lots of delicious things that make it taste so good. Butter, eggs, sugar and cream cheese. Oh how can you go wrong? Enjoy!

Gooey Butter Cake

1 Package of yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 tablespoons melted butter

Mix the above ingredients and pat into a lightly greased 9 x 13" pan. Prepare the following:

8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 tablespoons melted butter
16 ounces powdered sugar

Mix all thoroughly with electric mixer and spread over cake mixture in pan. Bake in pre-heated 350 degree oven for 40-50 minutes. Do not over bake, as the center should be slightly gooey. (Get it ~ Gooey Butter Cake!)
