Momofuku’s Butter Cake Bars

These bars are dedicated to my best friend Danica’s dad named Myron. Myron loves butter so I decided to make him these perfectly fitting butter cake bars for his birthday on September 26th. These bars are from and adapted from the famous Momofuku Milk Bar bakery.






  • 1 box of yellow cake mix
  • 4 ounces of butter, melted
  • 3 eggs
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 pound (16 ounces) of powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla extract


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line an 8 x 8 inch pan with parchment paper.
  2. Make the base first: mix together cake mix, butter and 1 egg.
  3.  Pat into pan, create an even layer.
  4.  Make the ooey gooey layer: Cream together the cream cheese, 2 eggs, sugar and vanilla.
  5. Pour gooey layer over cake layer, spread to edges.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes* or until edges are golden brown, center should be a creamy yet solid consistency like cheesecake.
  7. Cool completely in pan before cutting into 1-inch sqaures with a clean, dry knife. For best square results, pop into freezer and chill before slicing.
