Neiman Marcus Cake

Made this for all my friends at the lab tonight. My turn to give back! 🙂


Preheat oven to 350°F. You’ll need two mixing bowls. One for the bottom cake layer and one for the top cream cheese layer. Combine all ingredients in their respective bowls.

First Bowl (Cake Bottom)
1 box yellow cake mix
2 sticks of butter melted
2 eggs

Second Bowl (Topping)
1 8oz. Philadelphia regular cream cheese
2 eggs
1 pound powdered sugar (or 2 cups sugar in the raw works well too)

Mix each thoroughly. Cake bottom mix will be thick like cookie dough. Spread it on the bottom of a greased 13×9 baking pan. Pour/spread the liquid second topping layer on top.

Bake at 350°F for 35min, let cool, enjoy!
