Double Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake

Double Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake

Total Time: 1 hr 0 min
Prep 10 min
Cook 50 min

Yield: 20-24 servings

Level: Easy


* 1 18.25-ounce package chocolate cake mix
* 3 large eggs
* 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, melted, plus butter for the pan
* 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, at room temperature
* 3 to 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder, to taste
* 1 16-ounce box confectioners' sugar
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 cup chopped unsalted nuts
* Whipped cream, for topping (optional)


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter a 9-by-13-inch baking pan.

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, 1 egg and 1/2 cup of the melted butter. Stir until well blended. Pat the mixture into the pan and set it aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or using a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the remaining 2 eggs and the cocoa powder and beat until well mixed. Reduce the speed to low and add the confectioners' sugar. Beat until well mixed. Slowly add the remaining 1/2 cup melted butter and the vanilla. Beat until smooth. Using a rubber spatula, stir in the nuts. Spread the filling over the batter in the pan.

Bake the cake for 40 to 50 minutes. Be careful not to overcook it: The center should still be a little gooey. Let partially cool on a wire rack before slicing. Serve with whipped cream, if desired.
