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.

Always freeze and toast nuts

Always freeze and toast nuts

Nuts stay fresh longer when stored in the freezer. Before using them in a recipe I always toast them in the over, 350 degrees for about 5 to 10 minutes just keep an eye on them and stir them a few times so they don't burn. The 5 to 10 minutes if for FROZEN nuts. If they are not frozen it may only take a few minutes. The heat helps to release the oil in the nuts which results in more flavor for your baked goods.
