Food Friday

The cooler weather and Fall scented candles in my house are making me crave some yummy pumpkin dishes. This is one of my favorites. We love an ooey gooey butter cake in this family. “Oobies” is our coined term, thanks to Jules making them for Randall when we were dating. He thought that “Oobies” was the name and we loved his name for them so much we renamed it.
I have made this pumpkin version of Paula Deen’s several times and it is a huge hit for those who appreciate a pumpkin and a sweet, sinful rich buttery cake.
Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Cake

1 (18 1/4-ounce) package yellow cake mix
1 egg
8 tablespoons butter, melted
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.
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 over bake as the center should be a little gooey.
Serve with fresh whipped cream.

It is not Food Friday without a photo of the little foodie. He has Croup this week. He has been hanging out with his robe and house shoes on, soaking up some sick days with this Mama and Daddy. He is on the mend now, but still has an ugly little cough. I am ready for my little buddy to be 100% again!

Celebrating and decorating with purpose is my favorite thing to do. When I am not filling a tree with ornaments or throwing a birthday party for my golden doodle, I am being mom to a super cool tween son, the wife to a fine blue eyed man and selling real estate. I call northeast Arkansas home and when I am not loving on my people or celebrating in our space, I am using words to express myself here or on my podcast. Be sure to follow me! I am the co-author of a blog called Life with My Sister and have a podcast called Abby As-Is. You can also follow me on Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest and YouTube.
