Gooey Butter Cake

I may or may not have mentioned that my family is German.  My German Grandma was from Bremen Germany. She grew up on a farm in the area of Lagerfeld. She came to this Country when she was 17 in 1920 as an indentured servant. She worked for a family that paid for her to come over here as a Nanny and cook.And she could cook. One of my favorite treats was when she made Gooey Butter Cake. It is so yummy and rich and she made it from scratch the best ever.   So I thought I would share it with you. This is adapted from the original Scratch yellow hot milk cake.
