Lower-Sugar Gooey Butter Cake
By Paula DeenJUMP TO RECIPE
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 3 divided eggs
- 12 tablespoons melted, divided butter
- 1 (8 oz) package softened reduced-fat cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 cup artificial sweetner
Preheat oven to 350 °F.
Combine the cake mix, 1 egg and 4 tablespoons butter, and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13×9-inch baking pan.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the 2 eggs, vanilla and 8 tablespoons butter and beat together. Add the artificial sweetner and mix well.
Spread over cake batter and bake for 40-50 minutes. Make sure not to overbake, as the center should be a little gooey.
