Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cake

Chocolate Chip Gooey Butter Cake

Original Author says: If you aren’t familiar with gooey butter cake, it’s a St. Louis tradition that has spread nation wide. The original gooey butter cake version had a sweet yeast dough topped with a gooey butter filling that was sweet gooey. The modern recipe is simplified by using a cake mix, which becomes the crust and is topped with a sweet creamy filling made of cream cheese, butter and sugar. SUPER easy!
