For the cake layer

  • 1 package devil's food cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) butter, melted

For the filling

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 stick (4 ounces) butter, melted
  • 16 ounces powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Beat together cake mix, egg, and melted butter for the cake layer in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer. Mix briefly until everything is moistened and starts to stick together.
  3. Press the cake layer into the bottom of a 13x9 inch baking pan. Set aside.
  4. For the filling, beat together cream cheese and peanut butter in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla. Scrape the sides of the bowl and mix again until smooth.
  5. Mix in the melted butter until smooth, and then turn your mixer down to low and slowly add the powdered sugar. Mix until smooth.
  6. Pour the filling over the cake layer. Bake for 40 minutes. The center should still be a little wiggly.
  7. Allow the cake to cool and then stand back and watch your cake disappear.
