This was a winner at one of our United Way Cooking Contests at work a few years ago. I had misplaced the recipe and recently found it. There are many variations to this cake.

How to Make Pineapple Gooey Butter Cake - Steph

Step-by-Step

  1. To prepare the cake, combine all of the ingredients and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 9 x 13" baking pan.
  2. Prepare the filling: In large bowl, beat the cream cheese and pineapple until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla, and butter and beat together. Next, add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mix well. Spread pineapple mixture over cake batter and bake for 40 - 50 minutes. Make sure not to over bake as the center should be a little gooey.
  3. Variations: for a Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake; instead of the pineapple, use a 15 ounce can of pumpkin to the cream cheese filling; proceed as directed above.
    For a Banana Gooey Cake: Prepare cream cheese filling as directed, beating in 2 ripe bananas instead of the pineapple. Proceed as directed above.
    For a Peanut Butter Gooey Cake: Use a chocolate cake mix. Add 1 cup of peanut butter to the cream cheese instead of the pineapple. Proceed as directed above. (I have had the Peanut Butter Gooey Cake and it is decadent!) ENJOY!!
