Gooey Butter Cake
originated by mistake in Saint Louis the 1930s. According to legend, when a German baker added the wrong proportions of ingredients into a deep butter cake (similar to a pound cake) he was making, it baked to have a gooey filling. His wife then tasted the “mistake” and said, “It’s good, but it sure is gooey.” This led to it’s name Gooey Butter Cake.

We started with one flavor – “Mom’s Traditional,” which quickly became over 70 varieties (and counting), acquiring numerous local “Best of” accolades. Our products are available all over the greater St. Louis area. We have shipped our baked goods to all 50 states and around the world. We hope you enjoy every bite of every slice.
