drank Gooey Butter Cake by 52teas
1195 tasting notes

I think I’m going to let this one sit and meld a bit longer, as I am not getting much out of it beyond a touch of lemon zest. I added agave, but it didn’t really change anything. It just tastes like potential.

It does remind me a bit of Pancake Breakfast but lighter, and of course now that I’ve let it cool a lot more I can taste buttery cake. Or maybe it even reminds me of crepes, I like mine with a bit of lemon zest.

Also I have never had a gooey butter cake so I really don’t even know what I’m looking for other than butter and cake. I have just pulled up a recipe though, and next time I have a reason to bake for a bunch of people, I’m making it.

For anyone else who has objections to Paula Deen’s cake mix way (baking snob, sorry), here is a from-scratch way: http://smittenkitchen.com/blog/2010/03/st-louis-gooey-butter-cake/

I didn’t know she had a cake mix for this … but, I LOVE the premade gooey butter cake that is available at walmart. Especially the lemon gooey butter cake. OMG. That might even be better than lemon bars. I’m starting to drool just thinking about it.

Her recipe uses cake mix, there’s not a specific one as far as I know.
