Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake

Well, this is just another example of why I have to put pictures on our computer immediately... I have a tendency to accidentally delete when still on the camera! I made this cake about 2 weeks ago and didn't want to blog about it until I had the pictures on the computer... well, I've since lost them! So - no picture. Sorry about that, however I didn't get any good pictures so I guess not all is lost.

A coworker brought this recipe in 2 years ago and I've been wanting to make it ever since. Yes, it took me two years to make - pathetic, I know. To be fair though, my husband doesn't like pumpkin..

Anyway, I digress.... Here is a recipe for Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake. As I mentioned, an old coworker brought the recipe in a few years ago so I don't know where it came from...

Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake
Recipe Source: Sandy M.
CRUST:
Yellow cake mix
1 stick melted butter
1 egg

Combine the cake mix, egg, and butter and mix well with an electric mixer. Pat the mixture evenly into the bottom of a lightly greased 9x13 baking pan.

FILLING:
1 package cream cheese
1 15-oz can pumpkin
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 stick melted butter
1 lb box powdered sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and pumpkin until smooth. Mix in the eggs, vanilla, and butter. Then add the powdered sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and mix well. Spread pumpkin mixture over crust.

Bake in a 350 degree oven for 50 to 60 minutes. Do not overbake as the center should be gooey.

Serve with whipped topping sprinkled with cinnamon.

Beach Party Cupcakes AND 100th Blog Post

I saw these cupcake pops on Bakerella's site and just knew I had to use the idea sometime. When thinking about something fun to make for 4th of July I thought about something summery that the kids would enjoy so obviously a cute cupcake would do the trick and what's more fun in the summer than fireworks and swimming? Not much, I'll tell you that! Knowing that everything is fireworks galore on the 4th I decided to go the swimming route and make these cupcakes. Not only were they adorable, it really only took an extra 10 minutes to decorate than if I were to frost a plain-jane cupcake. Surf's Up! (aw man, I wish I had made some surfin little dudes! I'll have to remember that for next time!)

Nutella Cannoli

Nutella is something that I love, but honestly don't really eat or bake with that often, always regretting that fact each time I eat something with Nutella. Well, I am vowing to change my ways - starting with these Cannolis!  They're definitely not a traditional cannoli as the combination of cream cheese and whipped cream make them more like a cheesecake filling, or even mousse, but the cannoli shell makes them easy to grab and eat.  No fork required - my kind of dessert!


Usually I prefer to make mini cannolis because sometimes full ones are just too rich for me, however any recipe could easily be adapted to a regular cannoli shell size (or mini size if the case may be).  The combination of the cream cheese, whipped cream and Nutella definitely made these a rich bite-size dessert, that I think may become one of my go-to recipes when I need to make something quick and impressive.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my!

But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?  Check!  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do!  Pumpkin?  Well of course!  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try!

One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix them, ba…
