When I was young and living in St Louis I loved going to one bakery with my Mom where she would buy this delicious gooey butter cake. A friend of mine in St Louis found the original recipe posted in the local newspaper. Well I tried it and it is almost as good as the origanal I use to eat

How to Make St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. 1. Prepare the crust. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine 1 cup flour and 3 tablespoons sugar.
    Cut in 1/3 cup butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs and starts to cling together. Pat into the
    bottom and sides of a greased 9-by-9-by-2-inch pan. I use a springform pan 9 inch better for serving

    2. Prepare the filling. In a mixing bowl, beat 1 1/4 cups sugar and 3/4 cup butter until light and
    fluffy. Mix in egg until combined. A bit at a time, alternately add 1 cup flour and evaporated milk,
    mixing after each addition. Add corn syrup and vanilla. Mix at medium speed until well blended.

    3. Pour filling into crust-lined pan. Bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until
    cake is nearly set. Do not overcook. Let cool in pan. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
