Preheat oven to 350 °F. Spray a 13×9 inch baking pan with nonstick spray.
Add the cake mix, egg and melted butter to a large bowl and beat with an electric hand held mixer until combined. Scrape the mixture into the prepared baking pan and pat down evenly.
Place the cream cheese in a large bowl and beat well until smooth. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the peanut butter, vanilla and butter. Add the powdered sugar in last and beat until well mixed.
Evenly spread the mixture over the cake batter using a rubber spatula. Bake for 40-50 minutes. The center of the cake should still be slightly gooey when finished baking.
