Now for my recipe…I grew up in St. Louis, and one of my favorite recipes is a St Louis classic–Gooey Butter Cake! This is a great recipe to bring to those spring parties!
Gooey Butter Cake (From Just a Matter of Thyme, Recipe Book by Roxie Kelly and Friends)
1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, melted
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups powdered sugar and some for garnish
Blend cake mix, 1 egg and butter until smooth. Press into a 9 x 13 greased baking pan. Blend cream cheese, 2 eggs, and powdered sugar until creamy and smooth. Spread cream cheese mixture over first mixture in the pan. Bake at 325 for 40-45 minutes or until edges are brown. The middle will sink a little. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serves 10-12.
