My Mother in law calls them cake squares. Whatever, they're fast, easy, and people devour them until they're green.
Yellow cake mix
1 T. water
1 stick butter
chopped pecans (optional) I like it better without. . . one of the few things in life
Spray Pam in a 9x13 pan. Mix above and spread in bottom of pan, will be very thick.
1 blocks of softened cream cheese
1 box of confectioners sugar
Pour on top of cake mixture.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes and lower temp to 325 for another 20 - 30 minutes or until golden brown on top.
These are so VERY rich that I usually cut them in very small squares, about 1 1/2" or so.
For a change I have added a half capful of almond extract to the cake mixture. That's a terrific taste, sort of unexpected.
