Chewy Butter Cake
The crisp sugary top, rich cream cheese and butter filling, and chewy cakey bottom won us over, and we knew we needed to recreate it at home. Keys to a great butter cake include room temperature ingredients, an electric mixer, and the delicious richness that only real butter can provide.
1 (18.25 ounce) package yellow cake mix
1/2 cup margarine, softened
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
4 cups confectioners’ sugar
Procedures: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×13 inch pan.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, margarine, 1 egg and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Press into a 9×13 inch pan.
Using the same bowl, combine cream cheese, 2 eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla and 4 cups confectioners’ sugar. Mix together until smooth. Pour over cake mixture.
Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Cake will rise up around sides of pan and look fallen when done. Allow to cool.
