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

Ingredients

FOR CRUST

1 c
all purpose flour
3 Tbsp
granulated sugar
1/3 c
butter softened

FOR FILLING

1 1/4 c
granulated sugar
3/4 c
(1 1/2 sticks) butter, softened
1
egg
1 c
all-purpose flour
2/3 c
evaporated milk
1/4 c
light corn syrup
1 tsp
vanilla
powdered sugar

Step-By-Step

11. 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.
