12 daysGooey Butter Cake is a favorite of many people and while the vanilla and chocolate versions are standard fare variations of it are a bit more obscure. This week for the kid’s schools I made some Gooey Strawberry Butter Cake to change things up. If you are a fan of strawberries then you will love this. Every piece of it has an abundance of strawberry flavor.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with gooey butter cakes let me explain. This is a cake mix cake that is altered so that the batter is very thick. It is pressed into a pan and then a second layer to the cake is made. This layer is made of cream cheese and confectioner’s sugar. This makes for a dense base and a gooey rich topping.
