Lemon Gooey Cake

April 6, 2013


I think lemon is my favorite gooey cake version so far! These are the perfect spring treat. Have you noticed how all of my pictures are the same? It is because I always forget to take one until I have piled up the bars to take to a friend or to work. 🙂

Lemon Gooey Cake


  • 1 package lemon cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 sticks of butter – melted separately
  • 8oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 box (16oz) powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • lemon zest (I used bottled juice so didn’t have any)
  • extra powdered sugar for dusting


  • Preheat oven to 350
  • In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix with 1 stick melted butter and 1 egg. Press into the bottom of a greased 13×9 cake pan.
  • In a large mixing bowl (I always use the same one that I just did the cake mix in without cleaning it) beat the cream cheese until smooth.  Mix in 2 eggs, 1 stick melted butter, powdered sugar and lemon juice until smooth.
  • Pour cream cheese mixture on top of cake mix crust and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 40 to 50 minutes – trying not to overbake.
  • When cool, dust with powdered sugar
