    I made this for Thanksgiving at my house one year on a whim, and now it is a staple at our table. I have to make this. There are other variations as well: pumpkin gooey butter cake, chocolate gooey butter cake, pineapple gooey butter cake...all so yummy!

    My mom would make this when I was little and called it Sunshine Cake. We do a chocolate peanut butter version too. Just use the devils food cake mix and add 1c of PB to the topping ingredients.
