Paula Deen is known for her delicious Southern cooking.  She even has restaurants serving up some great mains, sides, and desserts.

Paula Deen's Family Kitchen Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

You can enjoy a slice of Paula Deen's Ooey Gooey Butter Cake at her restaurant in Pigeon Forge.

I bought a box of mix at the store to make at home.  Was it like the dessert served at the restaurant?

Nope.  It did not turn out like I had hoped.  However, I have a recipe that produces nearly identical results and you can make it at home.
