"Reverence for the Lord is pure, lasting forever.The laws of the Lord are true; each one is fair. They are more desirable than gold, even the finest gold. They are sweeter than honey, even honey dripping from the comb."
OOEY GOOEY CHOCOLATE BUTTER CAKE
1 (18.25 ounce) package chocolate cake mix (I used Devil's Food)
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Lightly butter or spray with cooking spray a 13-by-9-inch baking pan ( I used to 9 inch square pans). In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, 1 egg, and 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter, and stir until well blended. Pat mixture into prepared pan and set aside. In a stand mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the remaining 2 eggs, and the cocoa powder. Lower the speed of the mixer, and add the powdered sugar. Continue beating until ingredients are well mixed. Slowly add the remaining 1/2 cup (1 stick) of melted butter, and the vanilla, continuing to beat the mixture until smooth. Stir in the nuts (if using) with a rubber spatula. Spread filling over cake mixture in pan.
Bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Be careful not to overbake the cake; the center should still be a little gooey when finished baking. Let cake partially cool on a wire rack before cutting into pieces. Serve warm with whipped cream or ice cream, if desired. You can also serve them at room temperature like a brownie. Enjoy!!
