I tried again, different variation this time

So I tried the Gooey Butter Cakes again and this time I did the Peanut Butter Variation...So here is the recipe with the peanut butter. Gooey Butter Cakes (peanut butter variation) From: The Cookbook Junkie Recipe from: The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook Copyright 1997, 1998 Base: One chocolate cake mix (520g) 1 egg 8 tablespoons butter, melted Preheat over to 350 degrees. Combine ingredients and mix well. Pat into a lightly greased 13x9-inch baking pan. Prepare filling. Filling: 1 package cream cheese, softened 3 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla 8 tablespoons butter, melted 2 cups icing/powdered sugar 1 cup creamy peanut butter 1 cup chopped peanuts (to sprinkle on top if you so desire) optional Beat cream cheese until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla. Add butter; beat. Add sugar and peanut butter and mix well. Spread over base. Sprinkle with chopped nuts. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes.

These were just as good and didn't last long at the cottage this weekend! I thought I might try the lemon ones but didn't have any lemons which made it a bit difficult! If anyone is interested here is a link to the original recipe with all the different variations:
