Turkey Creek Lane · Gooey Pumpkin Butter Cake Recipe

Gooey Pumpkin Butter Cake Recipe

This is a to-die-for recipe. It is rich but worth every calorie, in my opinion.

This gooey pumpkin butter cake is outstanding. It is based on a recipe from Paula Deen.


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

Gooey Topping:

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.

Cake mixture has been patted into bottom of 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.

Mixing the pumpkin and cream cheese.

Serve with fresh whipped cream.

    Sounds good!

    Hi H,

    Pumpkin pie is one of my favorites. But, I like this better.

    i am so making this after i grocery shop this week! yummy!
    when you have a minute, i just put a new giveaway up on my blog for valentine’s day!

    Hi Jayedee,

    I love giveaways! I’ll be over. 🙂

    The recipe is based on one of Paula Deens and while all of her recipes are good, this one exceeded my expectations. I admit eating a good portion of it myself after my husband went to bed. He wanted to have some the next day and hardly any was left.

    You do make things look so beautifully … delicious! (complete with descriptions like “gooey”. And with the photos, who can resist?

    I hurried to the recipe and as soon as I read “cake mix”, I knew this one was for me.

    I want to thank you for the wonderful words you wrote about our sweet, sweet Kayla. They were very comforting and so appreciated.

    Hi Strawberry Lane,

    I have to admit one of the reasons I tried this was because of the cake mix part.

    Your tribute to Kayla was beautiful and very well written.

      Just beautiful. Lovely photo and a very interesting recipe. Not really like anything I would normally make.

      I’m going to give it a go, although I will have to steam and mash my own pumpkin. No canned pumpkin in Oz 🙂

      Hi sweetrosie,

      Let me know how it turns out with the real pumpkin. Actually, with pumpkin and 3 eggs, while the recipe is high in calories, there are vitamins and some protein in there.
