Gooey Buttercake


Gooey Buttercake originated in St. Louis, Missouri. In the 1930’s, a baker accidentally messed up a recipe and this is what it turned out to be. They sold it in the store and it became a hit. This recipe is filled with sugar, butter, and pure gooey texture that will make you either go into a sugar coma or be bouncing off the walls. You can tell from the picture above at what a gooey creation this is. I prefer to keep my buttercake chilled because otherwise it can be quite the mess to eat. If you are in need of a major sugar fix this is the perfect recipe for you. ENJOY!

About kristinegough86

I have the passion to bake and love trying new recipes! I work at a school for children with disabilities as a manager of a cafe. This cafe allows the students learn the ability to work with the public and in the near future I am going to be able to bake with the students and let them learn about the love and passion there is to baking. :) I prefer baking over cooking although I do love to cook as well. I hardly ever repeat a recipe. I love my family, dogs, friends, and job. One day I will have my own bakery and I can not wait. Until then I am going to continue baking my little heart out.
