Gooey Butter Cake

1 (18ΒΌ oz.) package yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 T butter, melted

1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
8 T butter, melted
1 16 oz. box of powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with electric mixer. Grease the bottoms and sides of two 9-inch cake pans, line with wax paper, and grease it. Pat the mixture into the bottoms of the pans.

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla and butter and beat together. Add the powdered sugar and mix well. Spread over cake batter.

Bake 30 minutes. Make sure not to over bake, as the center should be a little gooey.

Wilma used canned fluffy frosting, one vanilla and one chocolate. She spread the vanilla frosting between the layers and the chocolate over the outside of the cake. The frosting added something really special to the taste, so I recommend using those frostings.

This is one of the best tasting and richest cakes I've ever eaten. Don't be surprised by the consistency nor by the fact that the batter hardly rises. It's not cake-like

Edited to make a few changes that Wilma recommended.
