Better Than Cake? Absolutely!

Thanks to my new blogger friend (and fellow etsy seller) Julie, I am now completely addicted to this cake - or should I say, BETTER THAN CAKE! I saw it on her blog, it looked absolutely scrumptious and tried it. Needless to say, this is the fourth time I am making it - for a friend's dinner party tonight.

So if you think you have the willpower to resist making this every week, here is the easy - peasy recipe, courtesy of Julie:


1 box Pound Cake Mix
2 eggs
1 cup butter melted (2 sticks)

Mix above ingredients together and pour in a 9 x 13 greased pan

1 pound (1 box) powdered or confectioner's sugar
2 eggs
8 oz cream cheese

Blend and pour on top of cake mixture. Spread evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until top is golden brown and slightly cracked.

Optional: Let cool and top with fresh sliced strawberries, and blueberries. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.


  1. Brilliant!!! I love that you put fruit on top. It must counteract the billion calories and makes it look prettier. It is kind of scary looking when it comes out of the oven. I am going to try it this way when lent is over. Thanks for the tip!

  2. this dessert is a St. Louis area staple. We know it well as Gooey Butter Cake.... i think the name fits it... and it's a good one!
