     Ooey gooey butter cake has always been a family favorite.  How could it not be? It is so easy and just so darn delicious. This recipe is even more fun with plenty of sprinkles, making it perfect for a party!

     Some day I plan on baking one from scratch rather than starting with a mix, but this was not that day.  Besides, I planned on pumping this one full of sprinkles to celebrate a coworker’s birthday. 

      So I thought it would be fun to start with a sprinkle filled cake mix.  After all sprinkles are perfect for a party and more sprinkles are better!

     These cakes are so easy to make.  Just press a cake mix based crust into your pan.  Stir together  cream cheese, eggs and sugar (I told you it was going to be good!) and spread over the crust.

     Add more sprinkles, then just  few more for good measure. Bake. Try to wait for it to cool and devour! The hardest part will be convincing yourself not to make it weekly.

My little sister Chloe is the master of warming microwave desserts in the  microwave.  She warms them all up before eating it.

    I wasn’t sure about warm ooey gooey cake, but it was pretty darn good.  So feel free to warm a piece to try… or use this as a license to not let your cake cool completely before you dig in.  I’m not judging!

What a happy cake with all the sprinkles, Carlee! I'm sure your family loves when you makes this. Thanks for your visit to my blog. I usually respond my email, but you're a noreply comment blogger, so I can't do that. However, I appreciate you stopping by.

It is a fun one, that is for sure. Something about sprinkles just makes me smile! I have heard that I am a noreply blogger. I need to see if there is something I am doing to make it that way or if there is a setting I can change. Thanks, Kitty!
