As I write this, a Gooey Butter Cake is baking in my oven. St. Louis fans of this blog know the stuff well and can bake it blind or simply pick one up at their neighborhood Schnuck’s or Dierberg’s. In Virginia, Gooey Butter Cake doesn’t exist, unless we make it ourselves. We’ve delighted the neighborhood with random gifts of Gooey Butter Cake and till now, kept the recipe a secret. You will be horrified by this recipe, full of fat and sugar, it’s just heaven on earth. Make it for a special occasion, or if you want to break your diet in style.
GOOEY BUTTER CAKE
One box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup melted butter (don’t cheat — use real butter)
Mix these ingredients and press into an ungreased 9″ x 13″ pan.
One small package cream cheese
One box powdered sugar (reserve a small amount to sprinkle on the top when done)
Mix thoroughly and pour over the top of the cake crust. Bake at 325 for 35 minutes.
THE CURE FOR PMS
If you’re REALLY having a tough day, substitute the yellow cake mix for chocolate and add 1/4 cup of cocoa to the powdered sugar mix.
You’re welcome. Let me know if you try it.
