Louis Gooey Butter Cake a/k/a Chess Squares, Neiman Marcus Brownies, Texas Gold & so on: These are my fave dessert bars ever. So yummy & easy to make (only a few ingredients) & everyone always gobbles them up & wants the recipe.
The cake was first made by accident in the by a St. Louis-area German American baker who was trying to make regular cake batter but reversed the proportions of sugar and flour, hence the Gooey Butter Cake was born!
Paula Deen's Butter Cake: 4 out of 5 stars. Paula's Butter Cake is outstanding. Butter cakes are always good. It has a chewy edge and gooey inside. This is not something you can eat a whole lot of - it's super sweet. Great recipe, though.
