It is a cake enriched with the deliciousness of crusty and creamy batter that you are going to love. The buttery taste of this cake is going to melt your heart and you will never find an easier cake recipe than this. It is perfect for every occasion but I do not wait for something special to happen because I am a sweet lover. Like me, every sweet lover goes for recipes that they can make any time to enjoy cake at home.
Why it is called Neiman Marcus cake?
No one knows who named this cake or what is the reason behind this name. It has different names around the world like Gooey butter cake which highlights its main ingredient called butter. Mostly, it is made the same way with a handful of ingredients that you can easily find at a nearby store or home.
Today, we have been customizing this recipe by adding pecans, almonds, and any nut we like. Moreover, you can top it with whipped cream, and enjoy it with ice cream or some chocolate chips. The gooey taste is something you won’t be able to resist especially when it is combined with its creamy topping.
Anyone who is looking for a delicious sweet recipe that is easy to make should go for it. I highly recommend it to try if you have kids at home. It is addicting and they will fall in love with the cake with just one bite.
How to store this cake?
It is important that you always cover it entirely and then store it in the fridge. You can enjoy this delicious treat for a week. Now, if you want to freeze it then start by making the bars and then wrapping them properly. Store it in an airtight container and make sure to label it for 3 months’ use.
Can I use any different cake flavor mix?
Of course, you can. This simple recipe can be made with any cake mix but the traditional Neiman Marcus recipe is all about the yellow cake mix. I do recommend that try it the old way and then customize it any way you like.
Tips for the Neiman Marcus cake recipe:
You can add 1-2 tbsp of vegetable oil if you want the cake to be moist.
