I know, it’s a mouthful to say. But it’s even a better mouthful to eat!
You may or may not know that Gooey Butter cake is a St. Louis, MO creation and staple. It’s one of my favorite desserts. It’s so good that I decided to put my own twist on the standard yellow cake version. So, here is the recipe I made tonight. It’s for a birthday party at work tomorrow and I hope everyone likes it.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Toasted Almond Gooey Butter Cake
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
8T. melted butter, 1 chocoate cake mix (use your favorite), 1 egg
Mix the three ingredients together to make a thick dough. Press into a 13 x 9 pan.
In small saucepan, toast 1/2 c slivered almonds with a little butter. Set aside.
In separate bowl, mix 8 oz. cream cheese, 2 eggs, 1t. vanilla with a mixer. While that is mixing, melt 1/2 c. chocolate chips and 8T. butter in the microwave. Once melted, mix that with the cream cheese mixture. Add 16 oz. powdered sugar. Once it is all mixed, fold in 1/2 c. peanut butter chips and the toasted almonds. Pour the mixture over the dough that is already in the pan.
Bake for 45 minutes. Cake will be “gooey”. This is what it should be like. Enjoy!
