Orange Creamsicle Gooey Cake

Ooooey...Goooey...Goodness!

Ooooey…Goooey…Goodness!

Hello every body, this is Regina’s daughter Mish. I had a potluck bible study to go to last Friday and since I work all the time I decided to make something quick and super easy.. I have been making Gooey cakes for 20 plus years now and I have tried them all sorts of ways, but my favorite is the Orange Creamsicle flavor. When I took them to church that night, there were none left at the end of our meal (Thank God I dropped a few off to my parents before I went!)… The pastors wife took a few home to her husband, she said he would love them. So here  is how you make them.

Please enjoy these tasty little morsels of ooey gooey goodness. I know I have, just be careful as they are addictive. Mom said they would be real tasty with a scoop of home made vanilla ice cream.  You can make them with any flavor cake mix just do everything else the same. Try them at you next event and I assure you they will be a hit. Also you don’t have to add the whole box of sugar if you don’t want them so sweet. You can also substitute Neufchatel cheese instead of the cream cheese same effect less fat, but still just as delicious. And what a sweet treat to fix for your special someone for Valentine’s Day this weekend………..

Chocolate Crusted Peppermint Cheese Cake

Hot coco PLEASE!

Hot coco PLEASE!

First of all, let me wish you all a Happy New Year and hope everyone had a great Christmas! Christmas here was basically Sunday when all the kids came to celebrate and we got to spoil our great-grand kids. It has now taken me 3 days to recover as Ulric kept coming to Gram because I kept feeding him and consequently it was healthy food not JUNK food as all you’re devious minds might be thinking, ha ha! The reason for recovering was the fact that I kept picking him up and he is no light-weight by any means and Gram is not used to picking up about 25 pounds at a clip and he’s only 1 and 1/2 years old; gonna be a big guy like his daddy! Back pain out the ying yang this week but it was well worth the hurtin’….

Opening presents.

See ya all next year……til then, Ken and Regina wishing you all the best for the new year and always!
