Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake

This stuff is so good! Pretty easy to make too. But consider yourself warned- here is the warning:


And you may eat it all by yourself and not want to even share with others- so proceed with caution. And I am ok with that- if you are ok with that. But it's really not nice to not share- especially if you plan on making this around me :)

This is Paula Dean's recipe, I found on the Food Network. A great Thanksgiving or festive fall recipe! (or weekend, weekday, morning, afternoon, evening, whenever recipe too)


- 1 package of yellow cake mix
- 1 egg
- 8 tablespoons of butter, melted

- 1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
- 1 can pumpkin
- 3 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 8 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 (16 oz) box powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 x 9 inch baking pan.

Filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter, and beat together. Next, add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mix well. Spread pumpkin mixture over cake batter and bake for 40- 50 minutes. make sure not to overbake- the center should be a little gooey.

Serve topped with whipped cream~!
