For starters, this is Paula Deen’s recipe, so you know it’s amazing. On the way to Charleston last summer, my mom and I were buying some last minute groceries at Walmart, and I was naturally in the bakery section. I saw Paula Deen’s butter cake and lemon gooey cake and picked up both. Needless to say, both were eaten before we even left the parking lot. Last fall, I looked up the recipe to try (http://www.pauladeen.com/recipes/view2/gooey_butter_cake), and it turned out to be really easy and absolutely delicious. I also tried the lemon, chocolate, and chocolate peanut butter versions, which didn’t come out quite like I wanted but I just need to try them again sometime. I’ve made the original gooey butter cake several times and made two yesterday to take over to Beta, and the guys said it was delicious.
If y’all don’t trust me, trust Paula, and go out and make some gooey cake!!
