    • 9 ounces granulated sugar (1 cup plus 2 tablespoons )
    • Pinch of salt
    • 1 large egg
    • 1/8 cup corn syrup
    • 1/8 cup cold water
    • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1 1/8 cup all purpose flour
    • 8 ounces cake crumbs
  • Directions
    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter and lightly flour a 9-inch round cake pan. Add cake crumbs to the bottom of the pan; set aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and mix until well blended. Scrape bowl thoroughly. Beat in corn syrup; scrape bowl. Add water. Mix thoroughly. Add vanilla and salt. Add flour on low speed. Scrape bowl. Mix thoroughly. Spread the gooey butter batter over the cake crumbs. Bake for 30 minutes until the top forms a crust.
