In honor of Elvis Presley's 80th birthday I am sharing Paula Deen's Elvis Gooey Butter Cakes recipe. I have the cookbook put out by Elvis' uncle and longtime cook. This recipe is not in that book. Maybe this is Paula's version of a cook he would love, maybe it was one of his favorites. I really don't know its origin but I think his fans will love it (and he probably would have, too)! And anything by Paula Deen is good, in my opinion.

  • 1 (18 1/4 oz) package yellow cake mix
  • 1 egg
  • 2 sticks butter, 1 melted and 1 for filling
  • 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 whole banana
  • 1 (16 oz) box powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 °F.
Combine the cake mix, egg, and 1 stick melted butter together and mix well. Pat into a lightly greased glass 13 by 9-inch baking pan. Prepare the filling.
Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla. Add the peanut butter; beat. Add the banana and 1 stick butter and mix well. Add the powdered sugar and mix well. Spread over the cake mixture. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes. You want the center to be a little gooey, so do not over bake. Top each cake slice with a mint leaf and dollop of whipped cream.
