This Pumpkin Ooey Gooey Cake is a delicious dessert that perfectly captures the flavors of fall. Made with layers of sweet cake and pumpkin filling, it's a treat that is sure to impress. Pair it with my Homemade Pumpkin Spice for an extra burst of flavor. And don't forget to try my Perfect Pumpkin Pie, too!
What is Ooey Gooey Pumpkin Cake?
This recipe is inspired by the famous ooey gooey cake from St. Louis. While I've made my version semi-homemade by using a cake mix, you can certainly make it from scratch if you prefer!
The cake consists of two distinct layers. The bottom layer is made with a yellow cake mix and should have a slightly firm texture. The top layer is a creamy pumpkin pie-flavored delight that melts in your mouth. I love serving this Pumpkin Ooey Gooey Cake with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.
Magic Pumpkin Cake
Did you know there's a "magic" version of this recipe? In this version, you simply mix all the ingredients in one bowl and then bake. While there may not be a clear separation between the layers, the flavor and texture are still amazing!
