Butter cake has always been a big favorite in our household. My mom used to serve slices of butter cake sauteed in even more butter for our breakfast once in a while, and we always loved it. When I found this video recipe tutorial by Jan D’Atri, on YouTube, I was so intrigued by this vintage recipe. This is a vintage butter cake that was served in the South and is so dense and rich with eggs and a whole lot of butter. This recipe is surprisingly easy, you just mix your dry ingredients separately from the wet ingredients and add the two together at the end. You can use a bundt pan or a traditional tube pan, whichever you prefer is fine.


Ingredients For The Gooey Butter Cake Recipe:

  • 1 box of pound cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract (optional)
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter, (melted)
  • 1 pound of powdered sugar
  • 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese (softened)


In this video recipe tutorial by Jan D’Atri, on YouTube, you will learn to make this vintage butter cake in a few easy steps. You begin by making the first layer of your gooey cake and baking it at 350°F for 15 minutes. Then you will make the gooey filling layer and pour it over the cake and bake for an additional 25 minutes.
