This is a southern recipe passed down in my family. There have been many variations, but this is the original. So good!!

Sinful Bars


  • 1 box cake mix (butter recipe)
  • 1 stick butter (melted)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 c. pecans (chopped)

  • 1 pkg cream cheese

  • 1 stick butter (melted)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


    Preheat oven 350 degrees.

  1. Combine cake mix, 1 stick melted butter, 1 egg, and pecans. This will be the consistency of dough. Pat it out into the bottom of an ungreased 13×9 pan.
  2. In a bowl combine the remaining ingredients and beat until creamy. Pour this mixture over top of the cake mixture.
  3. Bake for approximately 40-50 minutes. The top should be golden and still loose. You don’t want to overcook this recipe. Let stand for at least 1/2 an hour. It’s hard to keep everyone out of it :)
