  • Gooey Butter cake

    I got this recipie from MidWest living, and just because I was bored and I had all the ingredients I made it. I have made it several times since then it is so good and so easy.

    1 cup all-purpose flour
    3 Tbsp. granulated sugar
    1/3 cup butter
    1-1/4 cups granulated sugar
    3/4 cup butter, softened
    1/4 cup light-colored corn syrup
    1 egg
    1 cup all-purpose flour
    1 5-oz. can (2/3 cup) evaporated milk
    Powdered sugar (optional)


    1. In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup flour and 3 tablespoons granulated sugar. Use a pastry blender to cut in 1/3 cup butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs and starts to cling. Pat butter mixture into the bottom of a 9x9x2-inch baking pan; set pan aside.

    2. For filling: In a mixing bowl, beat 1-1/4 cups granulated sugar and 3/4 cup butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until combined. Beat in corn syrup and egg just until combined.

    3. Add 1 cup flour and evaporated milk alternately to beaten sugar-butter mixture, beating until just combined after each addition (batter will appear slightly curdled). Pour into crust-lined baking pan.

    4. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 35 minutes or until the cake is nearly firm when you gently shake it. Cool in pan on a wire rack. If you like, sift powdered sugar over cake before serving. Makes 12 servings.
