Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake

This is a Paula Deen recipe. I love her recipes and her show. She reminds me of Duane's aunt. This is hard to describe. It's almost like an buttery, pumpkin pie bar. Just trust me. If it's Paula, you know it's good.

1 18 1/4 oz. pkg. yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 tablespoons butter, melted

1 15 oz. can pumpkin
1 8 oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
8 tbsp. butter, melted
1 16 oz. box powdered sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

To make the cake, combine all of the ingredients and mix well. Pat the mixture into a lightly greased 9 x 13 in. baking pan.

Prepare 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 40-50 minutes. Make sure not to overbake as the center should be a little gooey.

Serve with fresh whipped cream (or ice cream)

The recipe says it yields 6-8 servings. Maybe in Paula's world. This is a 9 x 13 cake pan so I would say more like 16-20 squares.
