We found Gooey Butter Cake on a family vacation to St. Louis several years ago and loved it. When I came across this recipe, I was excited and not all at once. I am what one might call a snob, I won't buy cake mixes. As a general rule it doesn't really save any time and scratch tastes 100 times better. So seeing that this recipe calls for a cake mix I was concerned at the least, but really couldn't figure out how to make it scratch without the mix, so I went to the grocery and bought a mix...my husband laughing the entire time. He said my face had a look of someone smelling a hog farm! Needless to say, I tried this recipe, and was pleasantly surprised that it really did taste like the real Gooey Butter Cake from St. Louis! Is one of my husband's favorites and he asks for them several times a month! Thank you Soap for this fabulous and unique recipe!
