Served this to my company last night. Rave reviews from everyone!
Insanely rich! This rounded out our meal last night and I got compliments from my guest. I believe he said it was "kickin'." ;-) Next time I'll serve with strawberries.
This cake is exceptional! Extremely rich...great with a cup of strong coffee. I had a bit of a problem getting the topping smooth, in fact, my arm was ready to fall off from all the beating! I finally gave up and poured it on even though it was not completely smooth. I used light cream cheese and I can't imagine it made a difference...this cake can not get richer than it already is! Thanks so much...growing up in Philadelphia, butter cake was a bakery standard and pretty famous...I am glad I can make it at home!
This must be another Texas vs Missouri thing, like BBQ because up here we call this South St Louis Deep Gooey Butter Cake - whatever name you give it doesn't really matter because this is an awesome cake. It's been a favorite in my family for over 20 years. Glad you posted it Miss Annie because people should REALLY try this one.
I am from ST Louis, and this is like our gooey butter cake, but loved the reviewer suggestion of the choc cake mix from NC so I tried it, what a great different taste.
This a cake that I have made for years, except I knew it as St. Louis Ooey Gooey Cake. You are so right, the Pillsbury Yellow Cake Mix really makes a difference. Thank you!!!!
This was excellent, sure can't eat much of it at a time. Very rich. We loved it.
Delicious and easy. Will make again and again
I've been making this recipe for years. I'm from Eastern North Carolina and it's called Gooey Butter Cake! So GOOOOOD! Also, can use any flavor cake mix - Lemon is my 2nd favorite; strawberry is ok and choc.is good to. Must try!!!
I have tried this recipe several times and it tasted good,, but I couldn't get it to look like the photos. The top layer doesn't look flaky....crusty....appealing. Mine came out looking like cornbread. Help!
