    Ann B's Note:

    Truly addictive dessert with the best flavor. My mother got the recipe about 20 years ago from another woman at a potluck picnic. She actually carried copies of the recipe with her because so many people always ask for it!

      This is an awesome recipe that I have used for years. It is also called Smash Cake. Any kind of cake mix can be used. The preference of my family and friends is butter recipe cake mix. The recipe I use says to combine cream cheese, eggs and powdered sugar and beat on medium speed for 5 minutes. I found if I under beat, the topping does not come out right. Very easy to make and great taste.

      First I made this recipe as is (with absolutely NO changes) because I hate when people rate a recipe after they make their own changes. Your not rating the submitters recipe, your rating something you made up yourself! With that said, it is very good but way too sweet but, I made it again a second time, accept this time I only added 10 ounces of powdered sugar and it came out PERFECT! Not too sweet but still sweet enough to satisfy nearly anyone's sweet tooth. If you've made this recipe and found it too sweet, I recommend you try it again with less powdered sugar, you will love it!

      Wow, what a wonderful, rich dessert! I read the reviews and found that some people think it's far too rich and sweet, but I'm thinking when something is called "butter cake" it's pretty much understood that it's going to be rich -- and with a box of powered sugar, well, there's another clue (that it might be pretty sweet). This was a HUGE hit with my family and friends, thanks so much for posting this recipe!! I look forward to getting brave and trying different things with it -- seems like it is also a good base recipe to springboard off of as well.
