I received this recipe from a co-worker. She made it and brought it to work for everyone to try.It would make you hurt yourself eating it,it was so good. I made it for the family get together for thanksgiving. I didn't bring any home,it was so tasty.It is a great cake for any occasion. In the spring or summer u could use the Banana or Pineapple recipe. In fall and winter you could use the Peanut Butter or Pumpkin recipe.I know you will enjoy this cake.

yellow cake mix
8 Tbsp
butter, melted
1 pkg
8 ounce, cream cheese, softened
1 can(s)
(15-ounce )pumpkin

Just found your recipe. Thank you for the variations you gave. Can't wait to try that peanut butter AND the pumpkin. Since summer is coming on, I'll start with the pineapple or banana. Thank you so much for sharing such a fabulous recipe.
