Never heard of gooey butter cake? Well, it is a St. Louis tradition. The name says it all. It rich, dense, and of course gooey. It is typically served like a coffee cake. Supposedly, Walmart sells a version of gooey butter cake and calls it Paula Deen Baked Goods Original Gooey Butter Cake. Since Paula Deen is the queen of butter, I would hope her cake is good.
In the photo, it is chocolate gooey butter cake on the left and a vanilla version on the right.
