Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cakes

Check out this Yummy Pumpkin Dessert from the Southern Queen herself, Paula Deen!!

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


1. Preheat oven to 350 °F.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. Serve with fresh whipped cream

I am currently off sugar at least until Thanksgiving, at least that is my plan. We'll see how that goes, but for some reason because it's October our entire office is packed full with candy and goodies and it's killing me!!
