Philadelphia Style Butter Cake
I am a Chef of 18+ years in Philadelphia and this recipe is simple and darn close to the original. If you think it is going to be like a cheese cake, you're wrong. This is more of a pastry. It is very sweet, so if you're diabetic, be very careful. This a a true Philly dessert. The cake mix does not "pour" like others may think. It is a crust base and must be formed into the pan. If you have any experience making cakes or pies, you should be OK with this. It is very easy to make if you know what you're doing.
