Chess Cake

Posted on: December 11, 2009

Call it what you want–chess cake, gooey butter bars–this rich Southern comfort dessert is a crowd pleaser and a sinch to make.

1 box of yellow cake mix
1 stick of butter, softened
3 eggs, divided
8 oz cream cheese (I used neufchatel)
1 lb powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Mix cake mix, butter, and egg together. Pat into the bottom of a 13×9 pan.

Cream cream cheese, two eggs, and powdered sugar, adding the powdered sugar gradually. Pour on top of cake mixture.

Bake for 40 minutes, until top is slightly golden and the center begins to firm.
