Gooey Butter Cake IV

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
My grandparents owned a bakery in St. Louis and this is the recipe my mom uses (and has been for decades) that's as close to theirs as she can find. Authentic St. Louis gooey butter does NOT use a cake mix OR cream cheese! And to those complaining that it is too gooey, that's exactly how it's supposed to be--oozing and gooing all over the place, not holding its shape. If it's firm, then it is overcooked. This dessert is quite rich but oh so delicious! A family tradition for generations of our family.

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
I made this recipe as muffins instead of loaves. I did not like this at all the day it was made. The banana and chocolate flavors were too distinct and didn't work together. I almost tossed them, but my boys liked them okay. I stored them in a freezer bag and by the next day, the flavors had melded together into a delicious muffin! I've since had trouble keeping my hands off them! So, I would completely recommend this recipe, just make it a day in advance of when you want to eat/serve it.
