French Vanilla Butter Cake




  • 1 package(8oz.) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/2 c. (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 c. powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees.


In a medium bowl combine cake mix, egg, and melted butter.  Stir together till cake mix is completely moist, but thicker than when you make a cake mix.  Spread by hand into a 9×13 glass dish that is sprayed with oil.  Cover bottom and up the sides.

In a mixer bowl, blend cream cheese till creamy.  Add eggs and vanilla, beat well till blended.  Add butter till well blended.  Then on lower speed, a 1/4 c. at a time add the powdered sugar.  Blend for about two minutes once sugar is added until smooth and creamy.

Pour batter into the crust and bake for 30 minutes, or till edges start to turn golden brown.  The center will still be wiggly, but will firm up as it cools.

Cool completely, add a dusting of powdered sugar to top as a decoration.  Serves around 20 +.
