Gooey Butter Cake

St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

MY NOTE:  Okay, I never knew Gooey Butter Cake was a St. Louis tradition.  Yes, I grew up by St. Louis, but I always thought that Gooey Butter Cake was a recipe from one of my grandmas in PA.  I guess maybe not!!!!  Anyway, it isn't the prettiest cake but it is by far the BEST tasting!!!!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes

Yield: 12
Summary: This coffee cake is a St. Louis tradition, where the cake becomes the crust and holds a gooey cream cheese and butter filling. It’s generally served for breakfast, but can easily make an appearance on any dessert table.
