Red Velvet Gooey Butter Cake Recipe


For the crust:
1 (15.25-ounce) box red velvet cake mix
1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 stick, melted
1 egg
For the filling:
1 (8-ounce) block cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 stick, melted
4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly spray a 13×9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.

In a large bowl, stir the cake mix, melted butter, and egg together to make the crust. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan.

In a another large bowl, use a mixer to beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the eggs and mix well. Add the butter and mix well. Gradually add the powdered sugar and mix until combined. Mix in the vanilla. Pour the filling mixture over the crust.
