This ooey gooey butter cake recipe by Pure Food on YouTube shows how to make a simple southern dessert. I love gooey butter cake, but I’ve never tried to make it myself. I didn’t realize how easy it is to make with simple ingredients. The prep time for this cake is about 15 minutes and overall it takes about 1 hour. This would be a great cake for those that love sweet desserts. Plus, I like how it uses a boxed cake mix which makes the recipe even easier. I can only imagine how the cake would taste because it looks super moist. It’s one of my favorite southern desserts and this recipe calls for shortcuts.




  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  • 1 package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 4 cups confectioners sugar


First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. In a bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, vanilla extract, and the melted butter. Mix everything together with a fork until fully combined. Press the cake mixture as flat as possible into the bottom of the prepared cake pan. Continue to watch Pure Food tutorial on YouTube for full instructions and details.
