Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Butter Cake

Cynthia Rivers Martinez


I got the original Ooey Gooey Cake recipe while watching Paula Deen about 3-4 years ago. I wanted to have a pumpkin variety of sweet at Thanksgiving and I have just never liked any of the plain ole Pumpkin Pie Recipes (this was before I knew about JAP) So I heard Paula say you could add other things to the cake to get the desired outcome. So I went to work on one to feed my family. Well everybody loved it and I have made it every years since.

Ok, that is how I remember it and based on my hand written recipe you would believe it to be true---BUT--- Paula has almost the exact one.
