I wanted to make this for our cover dish supper at the church tonight (ooops, last night, it’s 2:40am), but I didn’t have a yellow cake mix. Sooooo, I used the German chocolate cake mix and it was just as good!!! I didn’t get to take it to church because by the time decided what I wanted to fix and I found the ingredients in the garage (see post “Empty and Full”), there wasn’t time for it to bake. Now I’ve got a lot of lemon lentil potato soup and Chocolate Granny Squares. That will last a while (I hope.)
Preheat oven to 350˚.
Place 1 stick of butter in a 9 x 13 pan and put in oven to melt.
In a large bowl, mix with fork 1 box yellow cake mix (butter recipe) and 1 egg until totally combined.
In another large bowl, mix 8 oz. softened cream cheese, 1 tsp pure vanilla, 2 beaten eggs and 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar.
Pat cake mixture over melted butter.
Top with cream cheese mixture.
Bake 30 minutes or until golden on top.
Cool before cutting into squares.
(optional: top with coconut flakes)
