Ooey Gooey Butter Cake is just what it’s name implies – ooey, gooey and oh so wonderful. Enjoy it as is or topped with fresh berries, Ooey Gooey Cake will not disappoint.
This recipe was first posted in July of 2008. On my recent trip to NYC I enjoyed some ice cream with chunks of ooey gooey cake in it and it reminded me of how much I loved this recipe and that it was due for a recipe redo! Here is the original recipe with new photos.
Here are three reasons why I love Oregon. Blueberries.
I love berries and Oregon is berry heaven this time of year! I made a trip to the corner berry stand today and came home with a flat of all three of my favorite berries. Most of them are going into the freezer for our winter enjoyment. Blueberries to snack on, throw into smoothies and add to pancakes. Marionberries for pies and crisps and raspberries for all kinds of things….including Ooey Gooey Butter Cake.
Ooey Gooey Cake is the first dessert I make during raspberry season.
Ooey Gooey Cake
There are all different versions of Ooey Gooey Cake but our favorite is the original topped with fresh Oregon raspberries! I add a seedless currant or apple jelly glaze and we are good to go. I just heat up the jelly until it is liquefied and pour over the top of the berries that are on top of the cake.
The cake is a base of yellow cake mix together with melted butter and an egg. You then top that with a mixture of softened cream cheese, eggs and powder sugar. Oh my!
After you bake it you can eat it as it is or like I said, we like to top it with fresh raspberries and a glaze of apple jelly.
The cake is best served warm (if you really want it ooey and gooey) but it is also yummy at room temperature or right out of the refrigerator – it is good any time!
If I don’t have fresh berries to throw on top I like to throw a ripe banana into the batter for some added flavor along with some fresh whipped cream.
