Dessert is always a problem. Sometimes we serve strawberry shortcake, other times we call the ice cream truck. Martha Stewart's gooey butter cake may be our new favourite summer dessert.
Butter, sugar, salt, eggs, vanilla, corn syrup, and flour make the topping. This isn't high-fructose corn syrup, yet it gives butter cake its gooey texture.
Stewart's video also surprised us. She butters her baking dish and lines it with parchment, then uses two binder clips to clamp the parchment to the dish before adding the batter. This helps her hold the dough and topping in place.
