Let us introduce you to cake so divine, you’ll hear heavenly music when you enjoy your first bite. OK, that’s maybe an exaggeration, but St. Louis--where the gooey butter cake originates--got something seriously right when they made the very first of these ooey, gooey treats.
For those of you who haven’t had the pleasure of sinking your teeth into one of these squares yet, get prepared to drool: This treat starts with a tender, fluffy crust (traditionally made with sweet yeasted dough that has been updated to use cake mix) that’s topped with a luscious custard that develops a crackling sugar crust like you would find on the top of crème brûlée. But it’s actually easy to make.
If you only have the time to bake one, skip straight over the classic and go for this Nutella-laced chocolate version. The bars may look like brownies, but they’re better than any of those chocolate sweets you may have tasted. The creamy chocolate and cream cheese filling is downright divine.

But the blogger behind the Nutella recipe isn’t done with your sweet tooth just yet. She also has a version that features a chocolate cake crust hidden under a chocolate chip-studded butter filling. It’s like the gooey center of your slightly under-done chocolate chip cookie attached to a dense piece of chocolate cake--with that signature, crackly crust, of course. It’s good enough to make even St. Louis natives question the classic recipe.

But if you’re looking for an excuse to enjoy a thick piece of this wonder for breakfast, look no further. Swirled with sweet cinnamon and a generous drizzle of maple syrup, think super buttery cinnamon roll turned into a creamy cake when you glance at the picture of this version.
