Favorite Ingredients Friday!
It's back. I'm back. We're all back. I was shocked when I went through my archives and realized I hadn't posted a recipe since June 27th! Between all our summer excitement and an early back to school, I've been off my game.

It may be the middle of summer to some, but once we're back in school, I start to think about fall. And fall makes me think about pumpkin. Yum!

Another goodie from Paula Deen.

Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake

Cake:
1 (18 1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 tablespoons butter, melted

Filling:
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.

I'm with you. Kids go back to school, weather gets a bit cooler and all I can think of is pumpkin. In fact, I am toying with making pumpkin muffins this weekend. Or pumpkin pancakes. Or heck, live dangerously ... both?! :)

Have a great weekend, Kiy

Oh, that does sound yummy and fall is in the air here for sure... 60-70's temp wise... Guess that is the mountains for you you!

Hugs!

Well,

We all know this HAS to be good, coming from Paula Dean:)

Can't wait to give it a try.

I also do a bit of dropping out of the internet world during the summer. Can't wait for fall to catch up with everyone!

Take Care,

Trixie

Yummy! I like this pumpkin gooey butter cake recipe! It'd be a great alternative to pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving Day. :)

Thanks for participating in my Favorite Ingredients Friday recipe exchange! I do appreciate it.
