#WatercoolerWednesday: Chess Cake

beating_flour_into_cake_mixtureIt’s that time of year, my friends! The time where food takes center stage. (I know, we’d probably prefer sexy man candy, but hey, they have to rest sometime, don’t they? 🙂 )

So today I’m sharing a favorite Thanksgiving recipe from my family cookbook: Chess Cake. Oh man! I love buttery cakes, and this one, well, takes the cake, so to speak. You’ll be adding this slightly different but oh so good treat to your holiday repertoire as soon as you see the recipe, trust me!


Ella’s Family Chess Cake

1 box yellow cake mix

1 stick of melted butter (my fave ingredient!)

1 beaten egg

*Mix these three ingredients together and press into a 9×13″ pan.

8 oz. cream cheese

3 eggs

3/4 box of confectioners sugar

*Mix these ingredients together and pour over the batter in your pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Turn your oven down to 325 degrees and bake an additional 30 minutes. After the cake is done, sprinkle with confectioners sugar.

And that’s it! How easy is that for a delicious dessert? Very little stress for super yummy results. You won’t be sorry you tried it, I promise.

Happy Thanksgiving!

~ Ella
