Friday with Friends - Favorite Fall Recipe

Nothing tastes better in fall than pumpkin!  One of my favorite fall recipes is Pumpkin Gooey Cake.  Here is a recipe for it.

Paula Deen's Pumkin Gooey Cake


For the cake:
1 box yellow cake mix
1 egg
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter

For the filling:
1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
1 15 ounce can pumpkin pie filling
3 eggs
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 16-ounce box confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 13 x 9 x 2 inch baking pan.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine cake mix, egg and butter, and mix well. Pour into the bottom of prepared pan and set aside.

In the mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth; add pumpkin pie filling, eggs and vanilla. Dump in confectioner’s sugar and beat well. Reduce speed of mixer and slowly pour in butter. Mix well. Pour filling on top of cake mixture and spread evenly. Bake 40-50 minutes (You want the center to be a little gooey; so don’t bake past that point!). Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before cutting into squares.

This is a bit hit at my home and when taken to holiday get togethers!
