Ooey Gooey Butter Cake

Crust:
1 18.25 ounce box yellow cake mix
1 whole egg
1 stick butter, melted
Filling:
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
2 whole eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 16 ounce box powdered sugar
1 stick butter, melted
1 cup almond toffee bits or chocolate toffee bits

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 13x9x2-inch baking pan.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the cake mix, 1 large egg, and 1 stick of melted 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 2 large eggs and the vanilla. Dump in powdered sugar and beat well. Reduce speed of mixer and slowly pour in the 1 stick of melted butter. Mix well. Fold in toffee bits.

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!

Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Cut into squares. Just remember that these wonderful cakes are very, very rich, and a little will go a long way.

This is SO GOOD it should be illegal!!! And super easy! My dad gave me this recipe and I have no idea where he got it. Please make this and send me some! :)
