Who doesn't love a gooey butter cake? The variations and flavor combinations are endless. I came up with this version using some of my family's favorite sweet indulgences! It's an original creation that's sure to please! [See Cook's note on the bottom of the original recipe for further information about ingredients.]

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Wow, what a cake! We fell in love with this recipe at first bite. The Crew and I prepared this cake once using caramel cake mix and once using a butter cake mix. Happily, it turned out wonderfully both ways.

NOTE: A funny thing happened while I was preparing to take this cake's picture... I got the plate all fixed for the photo, then suddenly reached in the drawer for a fork and took a bite!! Proceed with caution - It's that darn irresistible. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
