The 'Southern' traditional get together cake. Passed on to me from a co-worker.

It takes some work binding all the ingredients and spreading them into the pans, but the effort is well worth it!

How to Make Ooey Gooey Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. For the bottom layer, combine in a large bowl, the cake mix, the softened butter, 1 egg, and the nuts (if used). Mixture will be thick. Spread into a greased and floured 13x9 inch pan.
  2. For the top layer, combine the confectioners (powdered) sugar, the softened cream cheese, the vanilla and the remaining eggs. Again, the mixture will be thick. Spread over the bottom layer.
  3. Bake at 350 degree F oven for 40-45 minutes, or until done. Cool completely, and store covered at room temperature if there's anything left.
