Bars 1 box yellow cake mix 1/2 cup butter, melted 1 large egg Filling 8 ounces cream cheese, softened 1 pound confectioners' sugar 3 large eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix together bar ingredients. Press into a 9 x 13 inch greased pan. Mix filling ingredients. Pour over cake mixture and bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cool and cut into squares.
Excellent recipe - easy and quick! The top browned nicely, it was easy to cut into bars, and the consistency was just right. My family loves these.

I have used this recipe for years, however, the cooking instructions are different. I was taught to preheat/bake at 400 for the first 20 minutes then drop heat to 325 til edges have risen and topping/filling is golden brown, about 35-45 minutes longer. Maybe that might help tighten up the topping. It's the gooey butter cake recipe so many of us love. Try different cake bases. This is Fun Food.

I rated this recipe 5 because it is an easy and tasty recipe with one exception in the ingredients. The filling was a little too runny , but I feel 2 eggs will make it just right other than 3. I think 2-8 oz bars of cream cheese may make it a little to stiff; harder to spread. I took a picture with my cell phone and I hope it is accepted.

this recipe takes FOREVER to solidify. It makes me question whether or not there was enough cream cheese (2 8oz vs the noted 1 8oz). This recipe should be modified.
