Nutella Gooey butter cake

Gooey butter cake…anytime this is said my ears perk, my tummy starts grumbling and my mouth starts watering. Gooey butter cake is almost the epitome of that desert that everyone loves and fights over to eat the last piece.

My sweety, Josh, loves gooey butter anything…he’s tried it all. Needless to say he had a huge chunk of this delightfully fun version of gooey butter cake! I mean adding Nutella to anything makes it somehow better right? I stumbled upon this recipe on two different blogs I follow, Plain Chicken and Let’s Dish Recipes.

First we just mix up a lovely chocolate cake mix with butter and egg. Then spread and smoosh into the bottom of your dish…as the base to your lovely gooey cake.

Next we take cream cheese, lots of gooey Nutella, egg, vanilla, butter, and powdered sugar…mix together toss on top of that lovely base we baked then put back into the oven. Yes, it will be gooey when you are trying to determine if it was done.

Nutella Gooey Butter Cake

  • 1 package 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1 cup Nutella
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 8 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 16 ounce box powdered sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer.
  3. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.
  4. To make the filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and Nutella until smooth.
  5. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter, and beat together.
  6. Next, add the powdered sugar and mix well.
  7. Spread Nutella mixture over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes.

I dare you to wait until the dessert has cooled to try eating it…when it first makes its way out of the oven its delicious and gooey and warm…after it’s cooled its delicious and gooey…
This is one dessert that when shared with the ladies I work with…didn’t make it home.
