It's all in the name, really! Gooey butter cake is the epitome of sugary, ooey-gooey, and perfect cake. This is an extremely decadent and delectable dish!


– ½ cup unsalted butter melted and slightly cooled (115 grams; 1 stick) – 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar (250 grams) – 1 large egg room temperature – 1 large egg yolk room temperature – 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract – 2 cups all-purpose flour spooned & leveled (250 grams) – 1 tablespoon baking powder – ½ teaspoon salt


Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Prepare a 9x13-inch baking pan with nonstick spray or parchment. Set aside. Mix sugar and melted butter in a large bowl. Add egg, yolk, and vanilla. Mix flour, baking powder, and salt with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until combined. Cookie dough-thick mixture.

Stop and scrape the bowl, then slowly mix in the powdered sugar until smooth and creamy. Don't worry about small lumps. Add the cream cheese mixture to the cake layer and spread evenly.
