St. Louis Style Gooey Butter Cake

Collegiate Culinaire: St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

A classic St. Louis dessert, straight from my mama’s cookbook! If you haven’t tried it, you’re missing out a uniquely sweet treat. It’s not really a cake, but not really a breakfast pastry either. It’s different, a caloric nightmare, perfect for breakfast or brunch, and worth trying at least once.

1 box of yellow cake mix

4 eggs

1 stick softened butter

1 lb. powder sugar

8 oz. cream cheese

1 tsp vanilla

-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

-Blend the cake mix, 2 eggs, and butter. Pour into greased oblong pan.

-Mix 2 eggs, powder sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla. Pour over the top of the cake mix. 

-Bake for 35-45 minutes.

Serve chilled or hot out of the oven.
