This is a very rich, sweet, gooey, buttery cake. I store leftovers in the refrigerator and they taste just like cheesecake! Yummy!

You have to understand that true Philadelphia buttercake, bought on the boulevard in the northeast section of Philly, is gooey and very sweet-you should try it with a can or pie filling cherries on it-almost as good as the bakery version!
