Double Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake


Here is the recipe for the cake I made for today's neighborhood party. It will make you want to slap your momma it's so good. ha!

1 cup butter, melted (2 sticks)
1 pkg chocolate cake mix (18.25 oz)
3 large eggs
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
3 to 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 box (1 lb) confectioner's sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts (I left out the nuts on mine)

Heat oven to 350 degrees and place rack in center. Lightly butter a 13x9 inch pan. In a large bowl, stir together cake mix, 1 egg and 1/2 cup butter until combined well. Evenly pat into pan and set aside.
In a large mixer bowl, beat cream cheese on medium speed until smooth. Beat in remaining 2 eggs and the cocoa powder until combined well. Reduce speed to low and add sugar; beat until combined well. Gradually beat in remaining 1/2 cup butter and the extract. Beat until smooth. Fold in nuts with a rubber spatula and spread over cake mixture.
Bake until set around edges but center is a little gooey, 40 to 50 minutes.

I make this same recipe, but use a yellow cake mix and leave out the cocoa powder....it's sooooo good! and the chocolate version sounds equally good!
