Gooey Butter Cake

This recipe for Gooey Butter Cake Bars was given to me on a plane ride from Atlanta to San Diego. I was working on creating new recipes and the guy sitting next to me, Javon, asked me about my blog. I told him how I love trying out new desserts and so he gave me two of his favorites to try.

I love Gooey Butter Cake Bars because they are easy to make and take with you to parties or tailgates. This is a great treat for those who cannot have chocolate but still love sweets! 

Enjoy!!
