Gooey Butter Cake

Amazing gooey butter cake recipe - a beautiful brunch recipe
A St. Louis favorite, gooey butter has been served for years as a breakfast danish and as dessert.  While the traditional gooey butter is our family favorite, we also really love the chocolate peanut butter and pumpkin varieties.  I enjoy serving gooey butter for out of town guests because it’s quick and easy to make and can be prepared in advance.
