    I just returned from a two week excursion by catamaran up the Bahama islands and had an awesome dessert on a small island called Frazier's Hog Cay. The couple moved their from Houma, Louisiana and opened a small bed & breakfast and restaurant. They served mainly cajun specialties that were to die for. Sue's dessert was call Goosey Cake and was made with cream cheese, powdered sugar and eggs in a soft crust. This is what she told me but I don't really know if that gives you enough information to figure it out. I remember that it was increadibly sweet and similar to a blonde brownie. Can anyone help me. I would love to make this cake.

    LOL Catchiou, When I read the title of your post, I thought it was going to be something like the 'kitty litter' cake!!;)

    Have you thought of wiriting the B&B people to ask them for the recipe? Just remembered, I have a couple of old Louisiana cookbooks, I'll nose around to see if I can find anything.

    Thank you Marmalady. In the meantime, I'll look and see if I was smart enough to pick up one of their cards. I'm guessing by the number of views that no one has a clue of what I'm talking about. If I'm successful, I'll post the recipe because, trust me, you're going to want to try this.:p

    BTW, dare I ask what is "kitty litter" cake?

    catciao,

    It is highly likely the recipe can be found under a different name. It is common for chef's to create new names for their foods.

    Out of curiousity, what shape was this? How high? What color? No filling? No icing? Served with anything else or alone? Sprinkled with anything? Was it kind of like a cheesecake "cake"? What was the texture of the inside like?

    When you mentioned in your first post "...in a soft crust" an image of a pie comes to mind, do you mean the crust that formed on the cake?

    I have a feeling this is what you're talking about:

    Gooey Butter Cake

    1 (18.25-ounce) box yellow cake mix
    1 stick butter, softened (1/2 cup)
    2 eggs
    1 (1-pound) box of powdered sugar (4 cups)
    2 eggs
    1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened
    Additional powdered sugar for sprinkling
    Preheat oven to 350*F (175*C).
    Mix cake mix, butter and eggs together. Spread in well greased and floured 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan.
    Beat eggs and cream cheese together. Mix in powdered sugar. Spread mixture over cake mix.
    Bake for 35 minutes. Cool and sprinkle powdered sugar over the top. Cut into bars.

    Henry: Thanks, this sounds very sweeeeeeeeeeet. I'll have to give it a try.

    cchiu: It seemed to be served like a bar or just a large square about 1.5-2 inches high. She heated it and served it in a pool of chocolate sauce.
