St Louis Gooey Buttercake

I have some of this recently at a little coffee shop in Maine.. It was WONDERFUL and reminded me of the consistency of the over-sweet but incredible buttermilk pie my mom used to make when I was a kid. I was so taken by it, I've attempted to make it three times. What I get is delicious, but it's more like a buttery cream cheese bar. Of course, I'm using the recipe which calls for a boxed cake mix for the bottom part (though doesn't use the cake mix recipe).. However, it's still too 'cakey'. I'm trying desperately to get that wet-like, sticky, gooey top. Can anyone here help? Has anyone ever heard of this and would you have a recipe? I've tried a few recipes off the 'net, using the photos as a guide to which ones I'd like to try, but still not getting the style I had from that coffee shop. (I've tried to get the recipe from the shop, but I get rebuffed. The second time they made it, it was horrible, so maybe whomever made it the first time just had a good fluke.)
