If you are old enough to remember the "Pillsbury" Butter Brickle cake from the 70's you know that this cake tastes nothing like it. The cake was dry and the icing too rich. Even with Heath bars crumbled up in the icing...it just didn't taste like the Butter Brickle cake I remembered when I was much younger.
This is GREAT! I've made this several times for different occassions and its always a hit! -I cut it into bite sized pieces and put them into little cupcake cups on a tray -that way none gets wasted b/c some people think its too sweet. I've also ground up some hazlenuts and pecans and sprinkled them over the top when it is still warm.
Well there went the diet... I couldn't stop eating this thing! Never had a Butter Brickle cake before. Thankfully curiosity made me try it. SOOO GOOD!!! I did add a bag of Heath Toffee bits to the batter (saved some for the glaze). And for the glaze I forgot to add in the evaporated milk but it was still wonderful. (Halfway melted some of the toffee bits into the glaze and then sprinkled some more toffee bits on the top for aesthetics). UPDATE: These do not translate well into cupcakes
Good cake for something a little different. I added 3oz cream cheese and toffee bits to the batter. I baked mine as a bundt at 350 for 55 minutes. Be sure to grease and flour the pan really well if you make the bundt mine still stuck a little.
I made this cake for my brothers birthday with the Best Buttercream Frosting from this site also. Unbelivable!!! The cakes has great flavor and moist. For the frosting it went very well with the cake. I followed another review to beat the sugar and butter mix for 15 min. to break down the grain of the sugar what a difference. Its a Keeper!!!
