Ingredients

8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted, plus 8 more tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted, plus additional butter, for greasing pan
1 (18.25-ounce) package chocolate cake mix
1 egg, plus 2 eggs
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3 to 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts (I omitted this)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


Lightly grease a 13 by 9-inch baking pan.


In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, 1 egg, and 1 stick melted butter, and stir until well blended.


Pat mixture into prepared pan and set aside.


In a stand mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth.


Add the remaining 2 eggs, and the cocoa powder. Lower the speed of the mixer, and add the powdered sugar.


Continue beating until ingredients are well mixed.


Slowly add the remaining 1 stick of melted butter, and the vanilla, continuing to beat the mixture until smooth.


Stir in nuts with a rubber spatula.


Spread filling over cake mixture in pan.


Bake for 40 to 50 minutes.


Be careful not to overcook the cake; the center should still be a little gooey when finished baking.


Let cake partially cool on a wire rack before cutting into pieces.


I baked it for 40 minutes and it came out wonderful.


They are more like brownies than a cake, and the are gooey just like the name says!
