Neiman-Marcus Cake

This is an awesomely delicious recipe that was shared with me by my good friend, Susie Hale!  I just had to try it today, and I have to say that it is one of the best cakes I have EVER eaten!  My husband, who really isn’t much of a cake person, ate TWO whole pieces and kept raving about how good it is.

If you read Susie’s notes, you will see that you can add nearly anything that your heart desires to this cake (nuts, chocolate chips, candy pieces, etc).  This makes it one heck of a versatile cake!  In the picture you see here, I added some milk chocolate chips to the top later ingredients and it was really good!  I can’t wait to try it with other additives!

If you decide to give this recipe a try, please come back and leave me a comment and tell me what you think.  Also, if you change it up any or decide to add anything, come back and let us know what you added and how it turned out.  I look forward to hearing from you guys on what you thought and your versions of this delicious cake!

Neiman-Marcus Cake


Bottom ingredients

  • 1 box Butter cake mix
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1 Tsp vanilla

Top ingredients

  • 1lb confectioner's sugar
  • 3 Large eggs
  • 1 8 oz. package cream cheese


Notes by Susie:

During the holidays I cut the dough in half and place it in two throw away foil 8x8 in pans, pour the top evenly over both pans …makes two nice Thanksgiving or Christmas take home deserts (gifts).

Sometimes I add chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips. You can use any sprinkles or candy such as M&Ms, or Reese’s pieces.



Step 1
Mix liquids first, then add cake mix, and mix well together with a fork (will be very thick dough) then pat down into a 9x13 pan…metal pan cooks more evenly.
Step 2
Mix the cream cheese (softened – I microwave it for 25 seconds), eggs, and vanilla with a mixer. Add the confections sugar and mix well. Pour evenly over the uncooked cake. If desired sprinkle chopped nuts over top and place it in a heated oven.
Step 3
Heat oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit, and cook for one hour (60 minutes). Let cool for 25- 40 minutes and enjoy. Since it has eggs in it be sure to store it in the refrigerator.
