This Is The Secret To New Texas Ice Cream Flavor

This recipe makes perfect gooey butter cake every time:

You will have to prepare two layers, and then back for about an hour at 350. You will want to set out an 8 oz package of cream cheese and 5 eggs for a couple hours before you begin.

Bottom layer needs:

  1. 11 oz sugar
  2. 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  3. 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  4. 13 oz all purpose flour
  5. 1.5 sticks of butter melted and slightly cooled (I use salted)
  6. 2 large eggs

You want to pulse all the dry ingredients to mix, then pulse in the two eggs. Pulse in the butter until it is a crumble texture.

Spray and line a 9x13 pan, and then gently spread the crust. Be careful to not press down very hard.

The top layer is:

  1. 8 oz of cream cheese
  2. 1 teaspoon of vanilla or vanilla extract
  3. 3 eggs
  4. 2 oz of powdered sugar

In a mixer whip the cream cheese until smooth, then pulse in one egg at a time. Add the vanilla and the powdered sugar and pulse until smooth while scraping down the sides to allow proper mixing.

Once the topping is ready, spread it on the crust layer, and then bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes.

Allow it to cool all the way before cutting,

"Yes the name is called gooey butter cake because it will taste somewhat like it is under baked."

Feel free to sprinkle some additional powdered sugar on top, and continue to experiment as you desire.
