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.


This is a very quick cake that is perfect for fall. I skipped the walnuts and forgot to top it with powdered sugar and it was still great.

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
3 eggs
2 apples, peeled and diced
2 cups graham cracker crumbs
3/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
powdered sugar

Blend sugar, margarine, and eggs in bowl. Stir in graham cracker crumbs, apples, and walnuts until blended.

Spread batter into greased 8×8 pan. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until firm to the touch.

Sprinkle liberally with confectioner’s sugar. Cool and then cut into squares.
