Making the Cake Layer:

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
3. Stir to combine.
4. Add the softened butter, and mix on medium-low speed until the mixture resembles damp sand (about 3 minutes).
5. In a large liquid measuring cup, whisk together the eggs, Maple Syrup, Greek yogurt (or sour cream), milk, and vanilla.
6. Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients, and stir together on medium speed for about a minute to a minute and a half.
7. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan, spreading it into an even layer.

Making the Gooey Butter Topping

 

1. Place the soft butter, maple syrup, flour, egg, vanilla, and salt in a small bowl and whisk together until smooth.
2. Pour the mixture over the unbaked cake layer.
3. Bake for 28 to 32 minutes, or until set underneath but still a little jiggly towards the very center of the cake.
4. Cool completely, cut into bars, and dust with powdered sugar for garnish.
