Double Chocolate Gooey Cake
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 18.25 ounce chocolate cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 8 ounce cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 16 ounce box powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly grease a 13x9x2" baking pan.
  3. 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.
  4. 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 continueing to beat the mixture until smooth. Stir in nuts with a rubber spatula. Spread filling over cake mixture in pan. Bake for 40-50 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 in to pieces
