Gooey butter cake is practically it’s own food group here in St. Louis! If you have never heard of this dessert before then I want to start out by saying that “I’m sorry!” I am sorry you have been living without this fabulous goodness for so long and I am sorry for the most perfect recipe I am going to share with you today. Your dessert experience will never be the same and some of your “favorites” will now need to take a back seat to this one right here! I can’t think of many ways for gooey butter cake to get better…except this one word…PUMPKIN! After you make this recipe, and you love this recipe, you’ll want to send me presents…I’m not even kidding! Seriously, though…I’ll send your my address :) Make this for a dessert or make it for breakfast or brunch! Either way, pair it with some pumpkin spice coffee and you might have to clear your schedule for the day because it will take you a bit to come back from your pumpkin coma! A. Delicious. Pumpkin. Coma.
I mean, what dish with 16 total tablespoons of butter and 16 ounces of powdered sugar is not to die for?!? You certainly got me! The cake creates a sweet buttery crust for the delicious pumpkin gooey filling!
