The “gooey” or “ooey” word is just too tempting for someone who has a sweet tooth syndrome. I was browsing for recipes at David Lebovitz (one of my favorite food blogs). And I found this Gooey Cinnamon Cake recipe on his blog. It’s a simple cake with a special twist, it got 2 different layers – bottom one is cakey and top is soft and a little chewy (ooey-gooey in other word).
See? The only thing unusual could be the corn syrup but could be replaced with honey or agave.
Baked at 350 F at 25 minutes. The missing egg on the gooey layer, didn’t affect the cake (though it should have added richness to it). Those wrinkly edges are the best part of the cake, they got a little crunch plus gooey goodness.
It’s a great cake for dessert and snacking.
