DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  • Grease a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.
  • Pour cake mix into mixing bowl.
  • Mix in 1 slightly beaten egg and butter to a moist dough consistency.
  • Press mixture evenly in baking pan.
  • Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese, remaining eggs and vanilla together until creamy.
  • Beat in sugar gradually, until smooth; this takes several minutes.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture over dough in baking pan.
  • Bake 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Watch carefully so base doesn't get too brown.
  • The cheese mixture sinks into the center somewhat, leaving a firmer crust around the edges.
  • Cut into squares to serve.
  • Some cooks sprinkle powdered sugar or pecans over the top of the baked cake or garnish it with fresh strawberries.
