  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 2 large eggs, beaten to perfection
  • 1/2 cup of butter, softened for that ideal texture
  • 4 cups of confectioner’s sugar, for a sweet, smooth finish
  • 1 8-oz box of cream cheese, softened to perfection
  • 1 small spoonful of vanilla extract, for that extra touch of flavor


  1. Preheat your oven to a toasty 350 degrees F, setting the stage for these scrumptious delights.
  2. Begin by combining the yellow cake mix, beaten eggs, and softened butter, ensuring an even and consistent mixture that will serve as the base for your Cream Cheese Squares.
  3. Take a 9×13-inch baking pan, generously butter it, and press the cake batter onto it, forming a delicious cake layer.
  4. In a separate mixing bowl, bring together the confectioner’s sugar, softened cream cheese, and a hint of vanilla extract. Stir these ingredients together until they form a creamy and velvety-smooth frosting.
  5. With your cake layer ready, gently spread the luscious cream cheese frosting mixture evenly on top, creating a delightful contrast of flavors and textures.
  6. Slide your creation into the preheated oven and let it bake for approximately 35 minutes. The result? A golden-brown, heavenly dessert that will fill your kitchen with the irresistible aroma of freshly baked treats.
  7. The last step, but equally crucial, is to allow your Cream Cheese Squares to cool completely before you start cutting them into squares. This patience will be rewarded as you savor each bite, savoring the perfect blend of sweet and creamy goodness.
