30 in 30: Gooey Butter Cake

Gooey Butter Cake is a traditional St. Louis recipe, so some will be appalled that I have hijacked the standard recipe and adapted it using Sister Schubert's rolls!   This base is slightly less-sweet than the variety that uses a cake mix for the dough, but retains a sweetness similar to the yeast dough base.  I liked it.  Give it a try and see what YOU think.

Gooey Butter Cake

In a food processor, process until crumbly:

6 Sister Schubert's rolls

Add and blend:

1/2 c. butter
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
1 t. salt

Press dough into lightly buttered 9x13 baking pan.

Combine thoroughly in mixing bowl:

8 oz. softened cream cheese
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
1/2 c. butter
3 3/4 c. powdered sugar

Pour over dough in 9x13 pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes, until top is cracked and golden and center is set.
