Gooey Butter Cake

This is a family favorite that comes from my mother's church's first Ladies Aide Cookbook back in the 1970's.  It is full of good old fashioned recipes family favorite recipes.  Cake Mixes were a standard in a lot of the desert recipes.

1  Box Pound Cake Mix or Yellow Cake Mix (I prefer the pound cake mix)
2  Eggs
1  Stick Margarine or Butter (I always go with the butter)

Mix together and spread into an un-greased pan 9 x 9 or 9 x 13

Now for the good stuff:

2  Eggs
1  Teaspoon Vanilla
1  8 oz. package Cream Cheese
1  pound box of Powdered Sugar
Combine all ingredients, mix until smooth.  Pour over the batter lined pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes
Do Not Over Bake!

Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of Powdered Sugar over the top while still hot.

Get a big cup of hot coffee and enjoy!
