These are sooooo good ... I like the lemon and peanut butter ones.

Gooey Butter Cake

Ingredients
(cake)
1 18.25 ounce box yellow cake mix
1 egg
1/2 cop butter, melted

(filling)
1 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 16 ounce box confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350 - lightly grease a 13x9x2 baking pan.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well. Pat into the bottom of prepared pan and set aside. Still using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth; add egss and vanilla. Dump in confectioners' sugar and beat well. Reduce speed of mixer and slowly pour in butter. Mix well. Pour filling onto cake mixture and spread evenly. Bake for 40-50 minutes. Center is supposed to be a little gooey, so don't bake it past that point!! Cool completely and cut into squares.
