Gooey Butter Cake

Jayme Lebahier Recipe shared by:
| Follow this Baker

Buttery rich and gooey, this bar type dessert is ever so good. I was given the recipe by a woman at church, but have since found it and many variations in the Paula Deen "The Lady & Sons Just Desserts" cookbook. The variations are only limited by your imagination and the ingredients on hand.

I once was told by my Grandmother never allow a cake to dry always take it out of the oven when you see the side of he cake seperate from the pan. This i have found holds true with box cakes as well as from scratch. Hope this helps. Also she would always have a little bastin brush with good old H2o ready when she filped the pan ...
