    Oh my! I have been in search of this recipe for YEARS! Growing up, there was a lady in our church that made this. She had given my mom the recipe and we made it all the time. At some point in my parents last move…about 7 years ago…the recipe got lost…THANK YOU for this!

      Hi Brenda! You will love it! I am making this again for Thanksgiving also! I used unsalted butter and pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling!) Happy Turkey Day!

      I am so sorry Maureen, I just found your comment in my Spam (stupid filter!) The small can is 15 ounces. You shouldn’t have a problem leaving comments again, I added you to the safe list ;-)

    This looks amazing! we are big fans of butter around here! i mean, who’s not? What do you think about using pumpkin pie spice instead of nutmeg? If so how much? And would I still use the cinnamon? Thanks! Plan on making this tonight!

    I know it’s only September but my hubby LOVES gooey butter cake and fall is in the air… this is a must make it was unbelievable!

    I only had spice cake mix in my pantry and I used that instead of yellow cake mix. It turned out amazing! Thank you for the wonderful recipe!

    I made this yesterday and it was amazing! I’m wondering if you can bake it in a pie pan? Seems more en vogue to bring pie shaped stuff to Thanksgiving

    Just made this for thanksgiving & it was a hit. Now my family is making me bake it for my sister’s birthday and Christmas too. Delicious! I didn’t have powdered sugar so I put regular sugar in the blender.
