I have made a similar recipe for years, but I combine the cake mix with 1/2 cup melted unsalted butter and one egg. To the softened cream cheese, I add 1/2 cup of melted unsalted butter, 2 eggs, and only 2 cups of confectioners sugar. I also top it with 1/2 cup of chopped pecans before baking 35-45 minutes. Everyone begs for this recipe!

I made this in 1999, when V. Monte originally had it posted on "AllRecipes.com presents Cakerecipe.com." (Does Cakerecipe.com still exist?) It goes by many names, and has many variations --chocolate, pumpkin, etc.(see Paula Deen's recipes on FoodNetwork). Don't overbake this! The word "cake" is deceiving, so when you bake this don't think something's wrong when it stays gooey--that's exactly how it's supposed to be. It is a soft, gooey, bar-like dessert that, while tasty, was much too sweet for my liking. It was okay, but after making this in '99, I didn't consider it a "keeper," and I never made it again.
