Paula Deen's Gooey Butter Cake

I made this for a twin-mom who just had her twins and I figured after I had twins I wanted some comfort food to comfort me! haha, this did the trick, it is so rich and good, you want to eat the entire thing!
The cake batter crust, I recommend using a larger square glass baking dish, but I used these to make it easier so my friend didn't have to return any dishes to me.
Spread the top on and bake
Honestly when you peel that outside crust off, it's like heaven to eat!

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter and beat together.

Next, add the powdered sugar and mix well. Spread over cake batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little gooey.
