Dawn Blankenship shares her Grandmother Ormsby’s recipe for Gooey Butter Cake, a St. Louis specialty:
Set oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour a 13×9 inch pan.
Combine: 1 stick melted butter or oleo
1 box yellow cake mix
Press this mixture in the pan until it covers the bottom and sides well.
Combine: 1 lb. powdered sugar
1 8 oz cream cheese (no light)
Beat this mixture well then pour on the first mixture in the pan.
Bake for 30-40 minutes. It should be light brown. It may be served while warm or cold. It may be baked and stored in the freezer for use later.
