Excellent desert! Very important to use right size pan and not overcook. I have made it w/ half the butter and twice the powder sugar. It is still very good and not as overwhelming. Must have coffee tea or milk to properly enjoy the flavors!
Best cake you'll EVER taste! It was gone in seconds!! Also good if you press some toasted pecan halves in it right when it's done, and sprinkle with powdered sugar! Thanks for the recipe! ALSO - if you want the bottom portion a little more moist, use margarine instead of real butter - it makes a HUGE difference!
This was a superb cake!!! Quick and easy, with ingredients I always have on hand. I tried adding about 1/4 c of milk to the cake batter to combat any potential dryness (a few reviews mentioned the slightly dry bottom layer)and it turned out fabulous. I will definitely make it again!!!
If you are bored with ordinary cake, this one's for you. Five stars all the way!!! My guy's mom has made this for him on every birthday, as per his request. I was ever-so-lucky to have her make it for me too. The secret to our version: "Butter Recipe Yellow" cake mix and use ONLY 1 stick of butter. If you crave chocolate, use "Butter Recipe Chocolate" cake mix. Also, bake time is roughly 30 min., take out while the cake is still jiggly and slightly oozes. ENJOY!!!
Pretty good. The bottom layer turned out a little dry & crumbly, but the chewy cream cheese-based topping countered that, so it was a good balance. I was able to cut it into bars that kept they're shape, on the 2nd day. Before I made this, and after reading the reviews, someone suggested a fruit topping might be good w/ it. Remembering that I had some frozen blueberries, I took them out and mixed them w/ some sugar and a squeeze of lemon juice, and let that set while I prepared the batter. After it was done baking and while it cooled, the blueberries became a nice syrupy topping! So while the bars were still warm, I topped it w/ a small scoop of vanilla ice cream and then the blueberries, and the combination of the three came out PERFECT. The presentation came out better too, than it would have if I just served the bars alone. I had my in-laws over, and they just LOVED it! Will definitely make this one again.
I tried this recipe because I lost my original recipe for these wonderful bars. I have to say that they did NOT turn out as I expected but that might have been my fault. I would definitely recommend doubling the 10x sugar halving the butter and adding some vanilla extract!
