I specialize in Gooey Butter Cakes and I make 58 different flavors. This one is one of my best sellers and my favorite. Using fresh fruit makes such a difference in flavor!! It is rich creamy deliciousness.

Oooey, gooey and oh so creamy, this cake is such a treat. This is like a chocolate covered strawberry, in cake form. My chocolate chips didn't swirl as lovely as I would have liked them to. We ended up spreading them on top of the cake in the Test Kitchen and it was just as delicious! The Test Kitchen

  • 3Pour on top of dough in pan. Drizzle with strawberry preserves and swirl to make it pretty. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes. Don't over bake, you want the middle to be a little bit jiggly, it will set as it cools.
