♥Gooey Butter Cake ♥


This is a recipe my Mom made all the time. The best thing is…I have the recipe in her handwriting 🙂 This is super easy and very very good.

Most of you may have already made gooey butter cake…especially if you are from St. Louis area. It was created in St. Louis in the 1930’s. If you have not had it…you are in for a treat!

I have to confess. When I was in High School the band was selling Gooey Butter cake in 8 inch round pans…. I ate the whole thing myself 😛
