Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake
yellow cake mix
cream cheese, softened
box powdered sugar
1To make the cake: Combine the cake mix, one egg, and 8 tablespoons of melted butter and mix well with mixer. Pat this mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 9 x 13" baking pan.
2To make the 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 and bake for 40 - 50 minutes. Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little "gooey". Serve with whipped cream! YUMMY!!
Variations: For a pineapple gooey cake: Instead of the pumpkin, add a drained 20 ounce can of crushed pineapple to the cream cheese filling. Proceed as directed.
For a banana gooey cake: Prepare cream cheese filling as directed, beating in 2 ripe bananas instead of the pumpkin. Proceed as directed.
For a peanut butter gooey cake: Use a chocolate cake mix. Add 1 cup creamy peanut butter to the cream cheese filling instead of the pumpkin. Proceed as directed above. This is to die for!!!!
