pumpkin gooey butter cake

This short and sweet: I know that as a food-loving person, It’s my duty to be appalled by Paula Deen’s cooking methods. I’m supposed to tell you that I am a cook/blogger who doesn’t need butter to make food taste good. Well, guess what? Butter tastes good. Especially in these pumpkin gooey butter cakes. We can’t get enough of them. We ate them too fast to take pictures- which is why the one above isn’t even my own (I’m so ashamed!). They are, all kidding aside, one of the most delicious things I have ever made. Gooey and so so moist, with a surprisingly irresistible crust from the  cake mix. Lord praise them. I love butter.
Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake
from Paula Deen
1 (18 1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 tablespoons butter, melted
1 (16-ounce) 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 by 9-inch baking pan.
To 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 batter and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Make sure not to overbake as the center should be a little gooey.
Serve with fresh whipped cream.
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 above.
For a Banana Gooey Cake: Prepare cream cheese filling as directed, beating in 2 ripe bananas instead of the pumpkin. Proceed as directed above.
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.
