This sounds thoroughly disgusting.

Yet another vile American "food". I'm surprised the recipe doesn't include a can of cream of mushroom soup.

I bet Paula or Ina have a good recipe.

You type fat, OP.

[quote]so maybe whomever made it the first time just had a good fluke

Goodness, OP needs to turn off her KitchenAide mixer and learn some grammar.

Wow, you guys are mean today.

You know, if I recall, Paula Dean does have a recipe for this, and I think she made it on her show once upon a time.

If you are already a diabetic, you damn sure will be after you eat St. Louis gooey butter cake.

It's so sweet, it can make your teeth curl.

Paula Deen has really good recipe for Ooey Gooey Cake.

With minor alterations you can change the recipe. For example: Chocolate, Pumpkin,Peanut Butter,etc...

I'm from St. Louis and have fond memories of my grandparents always having a gooey butter cake around the house. I think every local bakery had their own version for sale.

I decided to make it one time for a party and used Paula Deen's recipe, which is pretty easy. It vanished in no time and I've had people begging me to make it again.

BTW, Momofuku's famous crack pie is nothing more than a variation of this treat.

The pics of the cake in the first link look way overdone.

Isn't this sort of the "vanilla" version of molten chocolate cake only like 1,000 times sweeter? I can't eat stuff that's too sweet. It just doesn't look that appealing to me. Now if it were more like a lemon pudding cake, that I could do.

In the South, gooey butter cake is better known as chess squares.

You are correctamundo, r20.

"St. Louis"!? -- sniff, nose in air.

Leave it to the South to turn chess into something that'll block your arteries in ten minutes.

Just because some frau blogger writes what SHE believes to be true doesn't make it so. Real St. Louis Gooey Butter cake is not like chess pie or squares.

I had a gooey buttcake once, the night I found those two nice young chav boys in the park in London.

St. Louis pride has been wounded apparently ..

Yet, St. Louisans don't harangue over this, as, say, Texans do over chili. Any cake that goes by the name Gooey Butter is fine by them. Some versions incorporate cherry or pineapple, too, but that's not your everyday Gooey Butter Cake - everyday, that is, if you're in St. Louis. Gooey Butter Cake

Preparation time: 10 minutes Cooking time: 30 minutes 1 cup sugar 1/3 cup vegetable shortening 3 tablespoons butter, plus butter for greasing the pan 1 tablespoon dried milk powder 1 large egg Pinch of salt 1/4 cup bread flour 1/4 cup cake flour 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 tablespoon light corn syrup 2 tablespoons water 10 ounces plain Danish or yeast-raised coffeecake Confectioners' sugar.

1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.In a mixing bowl, cream together the sugar, shortening, butter, milk powder, egg and salt. (For an authentic egg-yolk color, add a few drops of yellow food coloring.)

3.Add the bread and cake flours, vanilla, corn syrup and water, and mix just until incorporated.

4.Cut the Danish or coffeecake to fit a buttered 8-by-8-inch pan, leaving a rim around the edge to contain the gooey butter mixture.

5.Pour the butter mixture over the cake and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar to taste.

You sound really, really fat, OP.

This whole thread is making me fat.

by Anonymousreply 3110/09/2013

You had it "recently" in Maine and have made it THREE TIMES since then, OP?

You are a big, fat, disgusting slob.

by Anonymousreply 3210/09/2013

I think this whole awful thread is just another poorly advised piece of damage control from the Paula Deen camp.

by Anonymousreply 3310/09/2013

The Post-Dispatch has a couple of recipes online, here's one.

R4 OP I lost interest in your [italic]essay[/italic] when you said "Of course, I'm using the recipe which calls for a boxed cake mix for the bottom part" and I went and googled something [italic]real[/italic] for you.

Who uses boxed cake mix for [italic]anything[/italic]?

IOW, you're welcome, cuntessa di tutti cuntessi. I hope when you were rendering the 2 c. of shit, you only had diarrhea.

Paula Deen's pumpkin version of the recipe is very good at Thanksgiving or other events at this time of year. 2,117 reviews indeed!

Paula Deen is a fat frau cunt and needs to have the sweet potatoes slapped out of her mouth HARD daily.

Other than that I think she's lovely.

by Anonymousreply 4010/12/2013

It is a disgusting concoction.

That Maine bakery must've stolen it from MY area, Philadelphia and environs, we're lousy with that thing.Your pastry is the wet, almost slithery type? Seems like they took it out of the oven half-baked? If so, go to the Wayne Farmer's Market(Wayne, PA) website, and I'll bet you dollars to whoopiepies, that they have what you're searching for. That St. Louis amalgamation can't hold a candle to the real deal.
