In Response to Re: Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake:
I made the Pumpkin Pie Crunch Cake for a church dinner and it was loved! We're having another dinner the Sunday after Thanksgiving. It will be flooded with desserts but I'd love to hear about something that makes a big hit where ever it goes.

Nancy the Outrageous Brownie recipe that I have posted is great. Very fudgy brownies.
Also the Nantucket Cranberry pie, or cake is wonderful. It could be doubled and made in a 13X9 pan to serve more.
So you don't have to search for it here is the recipe.
Nantucket Cranberry Cake
1 Tb melted butter
2 Cups fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped
1/2 Cup chopped walnuts
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 cup granulated sugar
1 Cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
Coarse sugar or granulated sugar for sprinkling on top
Pre heat oven to 350
Lightly grease a 10" pie plate or 9" square cake pan
Put the 1 Tb melted butter in the bottom of the pan.
Spread chopped cranberries and nuts in bottom of the pan.
Sprinkle with 1/2 Cup sugar
In a mixing bowl, beat together eggs, 3/4 Cup melted butter, sugar, flour, salt and extracts.
Spread thick batter over the cranberries, use a spatula or wet fingers to spread.
Sprinkle coarse sugar over the top of the batter.
(If you use regular sugar I sprinkle it over the top during the last 15 minutes of baking.)
Bake the cake for 40 to 45 minutes, until a tester comes out clean.
Remove cake from oven. Serve warm or room temperature. A bit of whipped cream or ice cream would be great.
I have also seen this recipe done where the cranberries and nuts are mixed right into the batter. This would also be very good and you would not have to mess with spreading the batter. Next time I make this I will try mixing the cranberries right in.
