Being from St.Louis where the gooey butter cake got its start, I came up with this lemony version. It's the best when you serve it warm. My family tore through this one last night.

How to Make Lemon Gooey Butter

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Prep a 13x9 pan with non-stick spray.
  2. Cake- In the bowl of your electric mixer place you butter, egg, and cake mix. Mix just until crumbly and butter breaks up in mix. Pat this down into your pan.

I then sprinkle alittle more powdered sugar all over when it comes out. Serve warm!
