First I had to master the cake itself. After many attempts and tweaks to recipes I finally hit pay dirt.
Here are a few photos of the gooey butter cakes I have made, good and bad. A few had Mike "chasing gravy," as he puts it. You will learn, as I have, about the things I like to call "Mike-isms." You'll catch on ;) Promise.
OK Attempt #1. Not bad, but flavor was wrong and texture of the base.
|Crust wasn't right, not sweet enough. Filling was good.|
And the baking gods shine on me with attempt #4, I figured out the issue with the crust and pan and now it's perfecto!
|Perfection - it is called "Gooey Butter Cake"|
|Experiment gone wrong.|
|Oozy cupcakes -- yum, but messy|
|This one was a bit smooshed but I had to taste it :) Delish|
