# 1 of 3 comment: regards to Bundt pan question - I would definitely say NO! The gooey part is very moist on top - almost runny. I have made this many times and love it. I even made it in chocolate once for a chocolate lover - not as good to Sometimes I lower the temp for last 20 min. - I don't like it too dry.

This cake sounds so good and easy to make too! Just what I was looking for. Has anyone tried using a bundt pan? If so please let me know how it worked out... Thank you, Vikki ;)

This is an absolutely delicious cake - we make it a few times a year. It's very very rich, so you can't eat a big piece, but, boy, is it good!

My sister gave me this recipe about 15 years ago. I have never been a big fan of Cheesecake but this is so much better (and easier). Last year I tried Pumpkin Gooey bars for Thanksgiving and they were great! I found that recipe in one of Paula Dean's cookbooks.
