Being from St .Louis, Gooey Butter Cake is a staple in just about every home. In St. Louis, it is as common as apple pie and sold in every bakery from your lovely corner bakery to the grocery store bakery department. It is served at breakfast, as coffee cake, dessert and is always seen at family events.

While there are many variations, basically it is a bottom layer base of buttery yellow cake and the top, the gooey goodness, is cream cheese,eggs,vanilla,butter, and powdered sugar. Remember I mentioned those variations? I’ve seen everything from Nutella to Pumpkin.

If you haven’t had Gooey Butter Cake, you don’t know what your missing! But, be careful, make one and, although very rich, you will be hard pressed not to eat it all by yourself!
