    Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake

    Posted by  ·  September 2, 2015

    If you love pumpkin pie and sugar cookies this Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake is for you. It is a delicious pumpkin pie like filling over a cookie crust! As soon as I start to see the pumpkins at the grocery store I start thinking of pumpkin recipes! If you like pumpkin you might also like my Pumpkin Cake Roll. It is a show stopping dessert that freezes beautifully. Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies and 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins make for yummy snacks! This amazing Pumpkin Bread recipe is so versatile it can be made into a loaf or muffins. If you need an easy dessert this Pumpkin Sheet Cake would make a tasty dessert for a fall meal.

    Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake

    Crust
    1 (18 1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
    1 egg
    1 stick butter (1/2 cup), melted
    Filling
    1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
    1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin (not pie filling)
    3 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 stick butter (1/2 cup), melted
    1 (16-ounce) box  of powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon  ground cinnamon
    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Mix together with electric mixer the cake mix, egg, and butter. Pat mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13 by 9-inch baking pan.

    For the filling beat cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth with an electric mixer. Add  in the eggs, vanilla, and butter, and mix together. Slowly add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg mixing well. Spread  the pumpkin mixture over the unbaked crust and bake for 40 to 50 minutes. Don’t overbake. The center should be a little gooey. You can see I over did mine and the crust was a little overdone. The cake was much easier to cut after refrigerating.

    Serve with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

    This recipe is from our sweet friend Jeanne who passed away last year at 89.  I love making recipes that bring back so many wonderful memories. I think that is what they mean when they say cooking is love made visible!

      I tasted this for the first time at a celebration we had at my church and my son liked it so much he wanted me to make it for Thanksgivings so I had to search for the recipe and I found your site. I made it for Thanksgiving and it turned out wonderful, it is a delicious and easy cake to make. I am making another one to give someone for Christmas. Thank you for sharing.

      This is similar to a recipe that I have misplaced. The only difference is the one I had called for pecans to be added to the cake mix. I'm sure it will be as good as the one I lost. Thanks, Jeanne I must be one of your name sakes.
