Tasty Memories

Monday, August 15, 2011

Isn't it amazing how certain tastes & smells can bring back some of your fondest memories?! My Grandma's Gooey Butter Cake, is one of my favorite desserts;  the sweet smell and creamy taste of gooey deliciousness brings back a flood of memories of my wonderful Grandma.
Here is her recipe:

Gooey Butter Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1 stick melted butter
1 box powdered sugar (equivalent to 3 & 3/4 cups)
1 8oz cream cheese
1 tbsp four

Beat box of yellow cake mix, 1 egg & sick of melted butter, press down into greased 13x9 inch pan; dough will be stiff. Then mix together 2 eggs, powdered sugar, cream cheese, & four and pour on top of dough. Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. 

A richly delicious dessert, enjoy with a glass of cold milk (for those who like it) or a hot cup of coffee. I am pleased to say mine turned out exactly like my Grandma's & with every sweet bite I remember her love, generosity, passion for cooking.
