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/
