Ooey and gooey = delicious and UNnutritious

Micah’s big 31st birthday was last week.  Unfortunately, I’ve been so busy with work and wedding stuff that I didn’t really do much to celebrate on the actual day of.  Instead, we celebrated with a big gathering of our friends over the weekend. 

We did exactly what Micah wanted to do: BBQ, eat, drink, chill, and play games. 

Of course, as part of typical Lisa protocol – I made a dessert!  And this one was seriously AWESOME!  (And so easy to make). 

Two words: Paula Deen

If you knew who she is, then you might be familiar with this dessert already.  If you don’t know who she is – just know she’s a very popular Southern cook, who’s number one ingredient in 99% of every one of her recipes is…butter!

I’ve been wanting to make this dessert for quite some time, and I’m so glad I did.  I thought there’d be leftovers for Micah to bring in to work for his co-workers…but nope, all gone!

Paula Deen’s Ooey Gooey Butter Cake from her website


  • 1 (18.25-ounce) box yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted


  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 (16-ounce) box confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, meltedI accidentally forgot this stick of butter – but it was still tasty…and honestly, probably better w/out all the extra grease.  I wouldn’t include it.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan.
  2. 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.
  3. Still using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth; add eggs and vanilla. Dump in confectioners’ sugar and beat well. Reduce speed of mixer and slowly pour in butter. Mix well.
  4. Pour filling onto cake mixture and spread evenly. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Don’t be afraid to make a judgment call on the cooking time, because oven temperatures can vary. You want the center to be a little gooey, so don’t bake it past that point!
  5. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Cut into squares. Just remember that these wonderful little cakes are very, very rich, and a little will go a long way.

If you search on the Internet – there are TONS of variations to this cake.  And I’m sure they are all tasty!

    You don’t have to hit the gym for two and three hours each day to lose weight, but it does help to squeeze in 30 minutes of physical activity each day.

    behind the wheel. You could serve jail time, lose your license or be ordered

    part in dollar on the maximum benefit for
    studying. Without lots of practice you can watch and get
    a feel fro who has what cards by watching them look at the cards.
