My grandma once asked me if Prince William and Kate Middleton were coming to my house, what would I serve for dessert? My answer, without hesitation, was St. Louis Butter Cake. It is kind of hard to explain…but basically it is a an amazing, melt in your mouth cake that is sure to impress any type of guest. Or, if you are like me, you will just make it for yourself on a lazy Saturday night in front of the TV (watching a Criminal Minds marathon obviously). And if the cake itself isn't enough, you can make it even better by simply adding a scoop of ice cream or a fresh dollop of whipped cream.
I like to serve this warm with a sprinkle of powdered sugar and some ice cream. That is the best way to go. It is still good when it cools, but it is 100 times better right out of the oven. Enjoy!
*Makes about 12 cakes
What else can I use in place for corn syrup? Thank you.
Hi Nico! You can replace the light corn syrup with 5 1/2 teaspoons of granulated sugar dissolved in 2 tablespoons of hot water or other liquid used in the recipe.
