Double Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake


This delicious recipe is baking right now in my oven and I had to share it with you! I feel as if I should provide a disclaimer: be prepared to SPLURGE with eating this gooey butter cake. Don’t even try to count the calories.


  • Crust:
    • 1 box devils food cake mix
    • 1 stick butter, melted
    • 1 egg, room temperature
  • Filling:
    • 8oz block of cream cheese, softened
    • 3 eggs, room temperature
    • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 1 stick butter, melted
    • 16 oz powdered sugar
    • A handful of chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 9 by 13 inch pan. Set aside.
  2. For the crust, combine all ingredients until mixed well. I usually do this step with a wooden spoon. Press crust mixture into bottom of the greased pan. Set aside
  3. For the filling, beat the cream cheese until soft and fluffy. Add in the 3 eggs and vanilla and beat well. Slowly add in the cocoa powder and powdered sugar and beat until creamy. Mix in chocolate chips. Stir in the melted butter until just combined. Spread filling on top of crust.
  4. Bake for 45 minutes. It will still be slightly gooey but that’s what you want! Let it cool for 30 minutes before eating.
