St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake

I love this article on St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake that appeared in the New York Times early this month. The story is centered around writer Melissa Clark's first tasting and subsequent baking of this delicious Made by Molly treat!

Here's a sample:

I took a big bite. It was nearly what my friend described, though I’d say it was more moist and cakey than gooey. Nonetheless I was hooked, and did not want to wait for next week to get more. I’d just have to make it myself.

I know that I'll definitely be making this one sometime in the near future! If you live in New York and would like to try Molly's yummy cake for yourself, you can find her stand at the Park Slope Farmers’ Market (Sundays 10 to 5). Btw, Molly used to be the pasty chef at Amy's Bread, so you know her treats must be good!

I hope everyone in the states has a great holiday weekend!

That caught my eye when I saw it in the NY Times, too. Have not made it yet, though. But who can resist anything called "gooey butter cake,'' right?

Gooey and butter, AND cake. This recipe has so much going for it already! Thanks for the link.

I just remembered to say, I did get round to making this, and it is indeed as described. Delicious!

Good to know! I still haven't gotten around to making it yet, but I think I need to move it up on my list! Thanks, Y!
