Gooey Butter Cakes

1 package of yellow cake mix
1 egg
1 stick of butter melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine ingredients and mix well. Pat into a lightly greased 13x9 inch baking pan.

Prepare filling

1 8oz package of cream cheese softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1 stick of butter melted
1 16-oz box of powdered sugar

Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla. Add butter, beat. Add powdered sugar and mix well. Spread over cake mixture.
Bake for 40 to 50 minutes . You want the center to be a little gooey, so do not overbake.

Variations:
1. For the holidays, add a 15 oz can of pumpkin to the filling and cinnamon and nutmeg.
2. Add a 20-oz can of grained crushed pineapple to the filling.
3. Use a chocolate cake mix with cream cheese filling. Add chocolate chips and nuts on top.
4. Use a spiced carrot cake mix. Add chopped nuts and shredded carrots to the filling.
5 Use mandarin oranges, bananas, blueberries, or strawberries- just coordinate your extract flavorings.
6. Use chocolate cake mix. Add 3/4 to 1 cup peanut butter and nuts to the filling.

I see this cake being sold on QVC , and so I thought I'd try it myself. It is sooooo good! I think its best made the day before you need it. It tastes better the next day. It's worth the calories!!!
