Ingredients

Cake

  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (113g) butter, melted

Filling

  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup (113g) butter, melted
  • 4 cups confectioners sugar

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees. (I set my convection oven to 325°F)
  • In a bowl, combine cake mix, 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla and the melted butter. Mash together with a fork until all ingredients are fully incorporated.
  • Spray a 9-inch by 3-inch round cake pan or a 9-inch by 13-inch pan with baking spray or use a piece of parchment in the bottom of the pan.
  • Press cake mixture into bottom of prepared pan and get it as flat as possible.
  • Place cream cheese, remaining eggs, vanilla and melted butter in a stand mixer and beat on medium speed until creamy.
  • Add in confectioners sugar 1 cup at a time (and on low speed) until all sugar has been added.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture over cake mixture.
  • Bake for 35-45 minutes. I moved mine from the oven when the edges were brown, but the center was still a bit jiggly. You do not want to over cook.
  • Allow to cool before serving.
