How to Make Gooey Grits Cake

I was intrigued when I came across this unusual dessert recipe. Now, ordinarily, I wouldn't think that a dessert containing grits, of all things, would be appealing. But there was a time when I thought rice was a funny choice, too, and I'm now a huge fan of rice pudding.

So needless to say, I tried it and surprisingly it wasn't bad. In fact, it was sweet...maybe a little too sweet for some people, but I don't mind.

Here it is:

Grits Cake

  • 1 yellow cake mix

  • 4 eggs

  • 1/2 cup melted butter

  • 1 cup grits

  • 8 oz. pack cream cheese

  • 16 oz. powdered sugar

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat over 350 degrees farenheit (careful here, ovens may vary. Mine does, a lot!). Mix cake, 2 eggs, butter, and grits in a bowl.

Mix cream cheese, powdered sugar, 2 eggs, and vanilla until smooth and creamy.

Spread first mixture into a 9 x 13 pan. Pour second mixture over cake batter, then bake for 35-45 minutes (once again, ovens may vary).

The top of the cake should be gooey. If you give this dessert recipe a try, I'd love to know what you think about it!
