Y’all know I’m all about quick, easy, no fuss cooking.  So it frustrates me to see folks making things way more complicated than they have to be.  I saw a post last week where someone was talking about how you can spread peanut butter between two sheets of plastic wrap and then freeze it and cut it into squares to make making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches easier.  Well, as far as I’m concerned, that’s just too much sugar for a dime.  (Have y’all ever heard that expression?)

The same goes for creating recipes.  Often times we try to come up with something new and different and get things all complicated, when something tried and true with a new spin is all we need.

This Ooey Gooey Spice Cake combines the flavors of fall with the classic gooey butter cake!

This Ooey Gooey Autumn Spice Cake is the perfect example.  There’s absolutely nothing new or groundbreaking about it.  It’s a standard Ooey Gooey Butter Cake recipe made with a spice cake mix rather than yellow or butter cake mix.  But you know what it is??  It’s absolutely delicious!  Like seriously delicious.  Like “I’m gonna eat three pieces,” delicious.  And yes, I did eat three pieces.  And no, I didn’t go to the gym afterwards.  And I’m ok with that.

For the crust:
  • 1 (15.25-ounce) box spice cake mix
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 stick, melted
  • 1 egg
For the filling:
  • 1 (8-ounce) block cream cheese, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter 1 stick, melted
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 350Β°F and lightly spray a 13x9-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, stir the cake mix, melted butter, and egg together to make the crust. Press the mixture evenly into the bottom of the pan.
  3. In a another large bowl, use a mixer to beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the eggs and mix well. Add the butter and mix well. Gradually add the powdered sugar and mix until combined. Mix in the vanilla. Pour the filling mixture over the crust.
  4. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until the edges are just firm but the middle is still jiggly. Cool completely before slicing into squares.

    I absolutely love the Ooey Gooey Butter Cake, but this one, oh my! I’m making a special trip back to the store to buy a spice cake mix so I can make this ASAP! My taste buds are screaming for this. I’m gonna have to put a muzzle on my mouth to keep me from eating the whole thing! LOL!
    Thanks Stacey for sharing this recipe.

  5. I will be making ASAP!! Looks heavenly!

  6. Made the Red Velvet and it was good! Made it for company and it was gone before I could get that third piece. I know the spice cake will be just as good. Thank you!

  7. Hi Stacey,
    This looks like a great version of a classic and I would love to try it!
    Do you think I could freeze individually wrapped slices?

  8. Unfortunately mine came out very greasy πŸ™ I followed the directions exactly and both layers are like dough.

  9. Yes it was. I don’t know maybe the butter was too melted. Everyone liked it so I guess it wasn’t all bad πŸ˜‰

  10. I have made this recipe for years using a lemon cake mix but the red velvet and spice recipes are making my taste buds go crazy right now. Can’t wait to try them.
