Here is the Pumpkin Gooey Butter Coffee Cake

Bottom Layer:
1 Package Yellow Cake Mix
1 egg
1 stick of melted butter
Mix all above ingredients together and press into bottom of a 9*13 inch baking dish.

1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1 15 oz. can of pumpkin
3 eggs
1 stick of melted butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp. ground nutmeg

Beat the cream cheese till smooth and add in pumpkin till smooth again. Beat in eggs, vanilla, and butter till all mixed together. Next, add in powdered sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and mix till all combined. Spread pumpkin mixture over cake and bake for 40-50 min. in a 350 degree oven.

Variations to the cake:
Use crushed pineapple (drained 20 oz.) instead of pumpkin.
Use 2 ripe bananas instead of pumpkin.
Use chocolate cake mix, and 1 cup of creamy peanut butter instead of pumpkin.

***I'm thinking the chocolate and peanut butter sound pretty good!!!

My family makes regular gooey butter cake all the time. It's super simple. The bottom layer is the same, and the filling is similar. It's 2 bricks of cream cheese, 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 stick of butter, and 3 eggs (I think). Bake the same amount of time and dust with powdered sugar after it comes out of the oven! NUM-YUMMY!

I have one can of pumpkin left from last year, and I might be making this tomorrow morning. It is DELICIOUS!!!
