Frosting Friday

Continuing with June's series with my favorite cake recipes, today's recipe is my all time favorite go to recipe that works for any occasion and is always a crowd pleaser - plus, it's so easy! Unfortunately I don't have a picture, so you'll just have to use your imagination to create a picture of the wonderful golden butteryness this recipe makes. Enjoy!

Ooey Gooey Butter Cake

1 box pound cake mix
4 eggs
2 sticks of butter – softened to room temperature
1 box powdered sugar
1 8oz. package of cream cheese – softened to room temperature

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Using an electric mixer combine pound cake mix, 2 eggs, and butter. Spread evenly into a 9x13 buttered pan.

In another bowl with an electric mixer combine powdered sugar, cream cheese, and remaining 2 eggs. Pour over the cake mixture.

Bake for approximately 50 minutes, until golden brown and center is set. Towards the end I usually check it every 5-7 minutes. Depending on the oven, it may take more than 50 minutes.

Cool completely before cutting into squares.
