A co-worker, Carolyn, in Louisville way back when, baked this cake the first time I ate it and it is ooey, gooey good; a great tasting rich cake! Temptingly sweet and delicious, these sweeties actually fall somewhere between a bar-type dessert and a coffee cake. It makes your teeth hurt just smelling it!
Gooey Butter Cake originated in
The cake is a bit quirky as it consists of two layers: the bottom being a rich dense layer of yellow cake and butter and the top layer all gooey with cream cheese, eggs, powdered sugar and vanilla.
Because it is made with a cake mix, it is fast and easy. It could even be tweaked with coconut embedded in the cake and it would be the next best thing to a Mounds Bar. If you’ve never made this cake, you need to give it a try! It won’t make you healthier but, it surely will taste good!!!
