Recipe: Texas Gold Cake

If you love Paula Deen's Butter Gooey Cake, you will love this recipe too!  I used walnuts, but pecans also work.  Even better, it uses a cake mix so it is super easy and fast.

Texas Gold Cake

1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 egg

1 8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 box powdered sugar
1 cups chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 9x13 pan.  In a mixer, add base ingredients until well mixed.  Dough will be stiff.  Pour into pan and press into the bottom.  In a mixer, add filling ingredients except for nuts.  Mix until smooth.  Pour into pan and spread covering base.  Add chopped nuts.  Bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
