Gooey indeed! This is a very decadent cake with rich flavors of butter, vanilla and yeasty goodness. While most recipes for this cake call for a cake mix this one has a yeast cake base which helps balance the gooey sweetness of the "topping". I did cut the sugar, but only slightly as I did not want to mess with the texture. Otherwise followed the recipe and then put the whole thing in a glass 9 x 6 dish. Admittedly, it was hard to tell when this cake was done (especially with the smaller dish) but in the end I felt that 37 minutes was about right for a cooked cake (base) and a still gooey topping. Patience with this one- if cut into this one early all your goo will ooze right out.
