Paula Deen's Ooeg Gooey Butter Cake When you hear the word “butter” who do you think of? Paula Deen? Me too. I have never made a single recipe from Paula Deen (sorry Paula! I still like ya’ll!) but I have seen this Paula Deen’s Ooey Gooey Butter Cake pinned so many times that I couldn’t resist. I have also seen this pinned as “The Original Neiman Marcus Bars” and “Texas Gold Bars”. Whatever you call them, they ARE ooey, they ARE gooey and they definitely have a rich, buttery flavor everyon
