Are you looking for an easy cake recipe? This Gooey Butter Cake is lick your fingers good and only has 5 ingredients.
This cake was so good I had to get it out of the house before I ate it all! This recipe comes from an old homemaker cookout I found at my husband’s grandmas house.
This cake is more bar like with two layers, a crust made with the cake mix and a gooey top layer, hence the name!
Gooey Butter Cake
5 ingredients is all it takes to make this yummy recipe! It is super simple, my favorite kind, which makes it great for picnics and potlucks. Why spend a bunch of time cooking when you can spend that time with your guests!
To make a smooth filling layer be sure to let your cream cheese come to room temperature.
Cleaning the knife after each cut will help ensure a cleaner cut. The gooey filling tends to stick on the knife and can make a mess of the shape of your bars.
