Are you sick of Pumpkin recipes yet? I sure hope not because I have just a few more for you. πŸ™‚ I know with Thanksgiving coming up you may have the “dessert” assignment and although it’s customary to be thinking of PIES, I don’t think it’s a necessity. Most people are just looking for something yummy (perhaps pumpkin??), and this next recipe is both of those things: yummy AND pumpkin!

If you’re looking for something that easy and delicious and isn’t a pie – then I recommend this delicious Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake. It has a cake layer, gooey, cream cheese and pumpkin layer and then it’s topped off with whipped cream. It’s great for any holiday occasion, but I promise it will be a hit at Thanksgiving. πŸ™‚

How to make Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake:

One thing I love about butter cakes is how EASY they are! Even though it’s a layered dessert, you don’t have to bake the layers separately, which saves so much time. This butter cake only takes 10-15 minutes to prepare before you throw it in the oven, which is super convenient if you’re throwing it together for a party or family gathering. Here are the specific instructions!

  1. Mix together theΒ cake mix, egg, and butter in a bowl. Pour into your greased 9×13 pan, patting it down until the bottom of the pan is covered.
  2. For filling, beat together the cream cheese and pumpkin puree until smooth. Add the eggs, vanilla and butter, then mix until everything is combined. Add powdered sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and mix again.
  3. Pour the pumpkin mixture over the cake batter and bake at 350Β° for about 40 minutes. When the cake is done, let it cool completely before topping with whipped cream. ENJOY!
