Gooey buttercake in St. Louis
Friday I returned from a trip to the Midwest, with St. Louis being the start and the end of the trip; Normal, Illinois was sandwiched in between. Normal had it’s high points, but we were there on a mission to take care of business. St. Louis was all about play.
Gooey buttercake is a famous St. Louis dessert, but despite my numerous visits there over the years I had missed trying it until last week. Sitting with my sister in law in a cozy coffee shop watching a light snow coming down outside, the setting and company couldn’t have been more perfect. The gooey buttercake was sweet but surprisingly light, and it more than lived up to my expectations. Next time I visit I’ll be sure to try it again.
