Way too SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!! But the next time I changed the proportion of ingredients and it was really good. Here is my revised recipe: 1 package yellow cake mix. I use Duncan Hines Butter recipe. 1/2 cup butter,melted. 4 eggs. 8 oz cream cheese, softened. 3/4 cup powdered sugar. And this is not a mistake; only 3/4 cup. 1 tsp each vanilla and lemon flavoring. In a large mixing bowl, combine yellow cake mix, melted margarine, and 2 beaten eggs. Pour into a greased and floured 13"x9" cake pan. Please note that the cake mix mixture will have the consistency of a dough more so than a cake, so it will be kind of thick. You can use a spatula to spread it. In a blender or food processor, combine softened cream cheese, powdered sugar, 2 beaten eggs; vanilla/lemon .... flavorings (to taste). Pour over the cake mixture. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until golden. You can use a 13X9 pyrex or 2 squared foil pans (about 8x8) . You can also cut into small squares and serve.

Did I do something wrong? The cake was tasty,but the top had a crisp crust, and the center was too gooey. It had the consistency of uncooked cake batter. Yuck! I made it exactly as instructed, and baked it for the appropriate time. I had to throw it away!

This was pretty good although it was more like a brownie than cake. Be sure to let this cool COMPLETELY before cutting or it appears to be gooey. Otherwise, it's great!!! Enjoy!
