Gooey Butter Cake

This gooey butter cake was an entirely spur-of-the-moment “OMG I need to bake NOW” thing. Some rather stressful events that were entirely beyond my control unfolded last night, and the only way I wouldn’t go insane was by baking this morning. Thankfully everything worked itself out by the afternoon, but I never want these same events to ever happen again.

The only solution I saw for late night and early morning stress was butter and sugar. Lots of butter and sugar. I had seen the post from How Sweet It Is for Gooey Butter Cake and bookmarked it for future baking endeavors, and this proved to be the perfect opportunity with my fully stocked fridge.

This cake was so rich and sweet that a small piece was more than enough. The strawberry was absolutely necessary to make me feel like I wasn’t just eating pure butter and sugar on a yummy soft crust.

You also can’t go wrong with a giant glass of skim milk alongside this cake. Anything with a higher fat content and you’ll be in a food coma after three bites. No lie.
