My brain seized up. Gooey butter cake! Gooey + butter + cake = excellent baking endeavor for a Saturday afternoon.
Luckily, I had snagged this local cookbook gem from my Nana not too long ago.
You really can't go too far wrong with a recipe book made from Midwestern moms' best dishes.
The bottom layer was a shameful amount of Crisco (one stick!), melted, and combined with a box of yellow cake mix and three eggs.
I spread the topping on the uncooked cake mix and popped it in the oven at 350 for 35 minutes.
Even Hubs, who hid his skepticism well, fell in love with the caramel-y crunch and rich ooze. It's a powerful force, this GBC.
