Paula Deen's Basic Yellow Gooey Butter Cake

(Adapted Gluten Free and Submitted by Wendy Glatz)
 
2 1/4 (18 oz.) Cups Mona's Happy Day Cake Mix (Healthy Approach carries Made By Mona mixes)

1 egg

1 stick melted butter

 
Mix the above ingredients together well and press into a Pam-sprayed 9X 13" pan and set aside.
 
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 16 oz box of powdered sugar
 
Mix the above ingredients together well and pour into the "crust" mixture in the 9X13 pan.  Bake at 350 for 30-50 min, depending on your own oven.  You want it "jiggly" in the center and not overbaked.
 
This recipe is an adaptation of a cake demonstrated on the Paula Deen cooking show.  You can also make it chocolate, add bits of toffee to the filling, or whatever extras you want.
