How to Make Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cake


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 9 x 13 in. baking pan.
  2. In a bowl, combine cake mix, egg, and butter with an electric mixer. Mix well. Pat into the bottom of prepared pan and set aside.
  3. Still using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth; add eggs and vanilla. Dump powdered sugar and beat very well. Reduce the speed of mixer and slowly pour in melted butter. Mix well.
