Melissa's notes for this recipe:
Who doesn't love a gooey butter cake? The variations and flavor combinations are endless. I came up with this version using some of my family's favorite sweet indulgences! It's an original creation that's sure to please! [See Cook's note on the bottom of the original recipe for further information about ingredients.]

Wow, what a cake! We fell in love with this recipe at first bite. The Crew and I prepared this cake once using caramel cake mix and once using a butter cake mix. Happily, it turned out wonderfully both ways.

NOTE: A funny thing happened while I was preparing to take this cake's picture... I got the plate all fixed for the photo, then suddenly reached in the drawer for a fork and took a bite!! Proceed with caution - It's that darn irresistible.

Hey Melissa, I am having no luck locating a Carmel Cake mix. I have been to 5 different grocery stores in my area. Can you recommend an alternative?

Hi Rose, It is sometimes hard to come by...a yellow cake mix will work and the cake will still be delicious! Enjoy!
