Gooey Browned Butter Cake recipe | a twist on the traditional St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

Yep! You read that right. I love everything browned butter & when we had guests coming over a couple weeks ago, I decided to adapt my traditional St. Louis gooey butter cake recipe. While that version can be a breakfast danish or dessert, gooey browned butter cake is definitely dessert, so go ahead & serve it al a mode if you want to go all out. If you can find caramel ice cream – even better.

The last couple weeks, we’ve been celebrating with friends & saying goodbye as we are preparing to move to St. Louis. My girlfriends & I went to a new restaurant in Kansas City, Newport Grill. When it was time for dessert, I immediately eliminated the browned butter cake from my options. I’m not a huge fan of traditional cake & certainly don’t want pass up an incredible dessert opportunity  for it. When friend ordered it & I tasted it, I immediately knew it was not traditional cake. It was gooey browned butter cake & I had to have it for myself. This is not an exact adaptation of it, but a great balance to prevent it from being too sweet.
