Cheesecake Blondies

These squares are YUMMY! They were quick to make and were a huge hit when I brought them into work. I actually made two pans of these and saved one batch for Andrew as he’s home this week. They most definitely get his stamp of approval. They didn’t cut very nicely, so they don’t get any points for presentation but they make up for that in taste.

This recipe uses a boxed cake mix, which I know some people aren’t fans of. Personally, I think scratch recipes generally taste better, but cake mixes can have their place in the world too. When life gets chaotic and you realize last minute that you are in charge of bringing dessert to a dinner party, it’s okay, reach for that super moist chocolate cake in the Betty Crocker box, it will be our little secret! ;)

  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 package of light cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup of butter, melted
  • 3 cups of powdered sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees and grease a 9 x 13 baking dish.

2. Mix the cake mix, melted butter and 1 egg together, until you have a soft dough. Press the dough evenly into the bottom of the dish.

3. Cream together the remaining 2 eggs and cream cheese. Add in the powdered sugar and mix well. Pour this mixture over the dough, ensuring it dough is completely covered.

4. Bake for approx. 45 mins or until the top is golden. Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer. Makes approx. 18 squares.
