What is Gooey Butter Cake?

Gooey Louie

6483 Chippewa Street  St. Louis, MO

One last STL classic before departing; gooey butter cake.  Served as a coffee cake, it’s a butter and yellow cake crust with a cream cheese filling who’s product is similar to that of cheesecake.   Story goes this was a mistake that worked: a baker added incorrect proportions of the ingredients and ended up with a gooey mess that stuck.
