Gooey Butter Cake I

You can also make it a Chocolate Gooey Butter Cake if desired. Just use a chocolate cake mix in place of the yellow.
Makes 1 -9x13 inch cake (24 servings).

1 (18.5 ounce) package yellow cake mix
4 eggs
1 cup butter
2 cups confectioners' sugar
8 ounces cream cheese


Directions
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter
one 9x13 inch cake pan.
2 Melt the butter slightly. Mix it with 2 of the eggs and
cake mix. Pour batter into prepared pan.
3 Mix the remaining 2 eggs with the cream cheese, and the
confectioner's sugar. Pour this mixture evenly over the first mixture. Do not stir.
4 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 45 minutes.

1-8oz pkg cream cheese, softened
3-4 tablespoons cocoa powder
1-18oz box powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup+ chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 13x9" baking pan. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, 1 egg, and 1 stick melted butter, and stir until well blended. Pat mixture into prepared pan and set aside. With electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the remaining 2 eggs, and the cocoa powder. Lower the speeed of mixer, and add the powdered sugar. Continue beating until ingredients are well mixed. Slowly add the remaining stick of melted butter and the vanilla, continuing to beat the mixture until smooth. Spread filling over cake mixture in pan. Sprinkle chocolate chips on top. Bake for 45-50 minutes, being careful not to overcook. The center should still be a little gooey when finished baking.

Constance those look amazing. OK, the chocolate one does! I don't care for pumpkin, but my family sure does. I will try both of these. Thanks!

Alix, I have made Paula Deen's gooey butter cakes for the past 2 Thanksgiving's and loved them. I remember her saying on the segment that you can change it to whatever flavor you want. Maybe cherry pie filling or whatever floats you boat, but the pumpkin was good.

Rainee-
I have a recipe that is almost like that just a little different. It is pretty much the same minus the pumpkin. It is the recipe I get requested by everyone to bring to parties for dessert. I will post it when I get home and get the recipe.

Here's one more...looks sooo good!

Elvis Gooey Butter Cakes
Recipe courtesy Paula Deen

Cake:
1 (18 1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter, melted
Mint leaves, for garnish
Whipped cream, for garnish

Filling:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 whole banana
8 tablespoons (1 stick) butter
1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter together and mix well. Pat into a
lightly greased glass 13 by 9-inch baking pan. Prepare the filling.

Beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla. Add the
peanut butter; beat. Add the banana and butter and mix well. Add the
powdered sugar and mix well. Spread over the cake mixture. Bake for 45

bake. Top each cake slice with a mint leaf and dollop of whipped cream
