New Ideas for Regional Favorites: St. Louis - Build a Better Butter Cake

Legend has it that sometime in the 1930s, a baker in St. Louis accidentally mixed up the portion of butter while making a traditional coffee cake and that is how the first butter cake was born.

Since then, this deliciously rich confection has grown in popularity, branching outside the borders of Missouri to become an American classic throughout the country. Today, butter cake can be found on menus in many forms, including a truly American edition featuring pumpkin and spice filling for a cake used in place of pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving.

NEW TWISTS ON A REGIONAL FAVORITE:

  • Say I do. A regional baker looking to create something different for his wedding cake business capitalized on the popularity of this regional classic by offering butter wedding cakes.
  • Something for every season. A creative regional baking company has elevated the butter cake to be the choice for all seasons by featuring such cakes as eggnog for Christmas; red velvet for Valentine’s Day; triple berry with strawberries, blackberries and blueberries during the summer months and brown sugar pecan for fall.
  • Breaking with tradition. One regional restaurant changed its butter cake recipe to feature a gooey cream cheese inside with a caramelized sugar crust on top. They even feature blueberry lime or strawberry lemon butter cake flavors on occasion.
