Buckle up because here we go! Tis our season
Sugar Lovers. Start off with this Pumpkin Gooey Cake. It’s a no-fail recipe
that’s sure to please. Make sure to add the spiked bourbon whipped cream for adults.

For the crust…

1 package yellow cake mix


1 egg


8 Tbsp. butter, melted

For the filling…

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened


1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin


3 eggs


1½ tsp. vanilla


8 Tbsp. butter, melted


1 (16 oz.) box powdered sugar


1 tsp. cinnamon


½ tsp. nutmeg


½ tsp. ginger

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray the bottom of a 13×9 inch pan with cooking spray.

Step 2

For the crust, combine cake mix and egg in a large bowl. Mix with an electric mixer on low speed until well combined. Slowly add in the butter and continue to mix on low speed until dough has formed. Pat the mixture into the bottom of a lightly greased 13×9 inch pan.

Step 3

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 the pumpkin mixture over the cake batter and bake for 40-50 minutes. Make sure you do not over bake – center should slightly jiggle.


*Add SPIKED whipped cream. In a medium sized bowl, whip together 1 cup of heavy whipping cream, 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar and 1 tablespoon of bourbon. Mix on medium speed until thick. Put a large dollop on a slice of cake & serve. Sprinkle with cinnamon. (Courtesy of Simple Gourmet).
*Drizzle w/ chocolate. Put 2 ounces of chocolate into a microwave safe bowl. Heat and stir in 30 second increments until melted. Be careful not to burn. Dip a fork in melted chocolate, then drizzle over cake forming thin stripes. Refrigerate until set one hour. Serve cake at room temperature.
