Ugly Cake

Leslie Cross Recipe shared by:

This is for the serious chocolate loving sweet tooth!! Called "ugly" because the top ends up looking like something went wrong, but this cake is TOTALLY RIGHT!! I have made this for years and it is always requested. Just don't count the calories...this cake may have more of them than any other I know!

Ingredients

  • Cake:
  • 1 Box Devil's Food Cake Mix
  • 1 Stick butter - melted
  • 2 Eggs
  • Topping:
  • 1 Stick butter - melted (yes, another stick of butter)
  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese - softened
  • 1 lb. Powdered Sugar
  • Note: Margarine is fine.

Baking Instructions

  1. 1. No need to prepare the 9 X 13 pan.
  2. 2. Preheat oven to 350.
  3. 3. Melt butter for Cake layer. Mix with Devil's Food mix and 2 eggs. Mix this as you would brownies, just until all ingredients are moist.
  4. 4. Press cake mixture into bottom of pan.
  5. 5. Melt 2nd stick of butter.
  6. 6. Mix with cream cheese and powdered sugar.
  7. 7. Spread the cream cheese mixture evenly over the top.
  8. 8. Bake for 30 minutes.
  9. Note: The toothpick test does not work very well with this recipe. I had to make it a couple times in my oven to get the timing just right. You want to cook it until done, but not over cook it. It really should have a moist brownie texture.
