Earlier this month, we had our fun neighbors, Kirk, Melissa and Thomas, over for a late Sunday lunch.
After we ate, I brought out a cake I was so excited to try. Melissa saw it, and asked, “Is that gooey butter cake?”
I laughed in surprise. I had never had it before, but she apparently makes it all the time, and with different, tasty variations.
I thought it was funny that my “new” cake was one of her favorites. It didn’t change the fact that the cake was fabulous.
I let a drawn out “mmmmmm” during my first bite. I couldn’t stop eating it, and neither could Jad, who kept moving closer to the pan.
This is literally perfection in a cake, but Melissa told me it is fun to change the cake mix flavor, and play with extracts and toppings.
Here is the recipe for Mom’s Gooey Butter Cake:

I am so glad Kirk, Melissa, and Thomas came over. We not only had a wonderful cake, but Kirk gave me the inspiration to expand my blog into my own site. He has been a wonderful help in its creation. I appreciate my neighbors’ friendship so much!
