How to Make St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake
- 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.
