Gooey Butter Cake


This is something very special to Saint Louis. For as long as I can remember, we’d head to Schnuck’s soon after we arrived at Nana and Papa’s house to get a few groceries, namely Gooey Butter Cake. We’d eat it every morning for breakfast during our stay and then take one back to Wisconsin with us when we left.
