This was my first experience baking a cake from scratch and it was great! I made it for my husband's birthday & he loved it!!!
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.
Used as a cake with fresh strawberries and whipped cream, one of my favorite desserts! Has a wonderful taste!
It's a nice change from other cakes. Not too sweet, kinda dense and crumbly though. I was hoping for more of a moist cake.
This cake is absolutely delicious. It was easy to make and turned out perfectly. The texture was very soft and moist. I would recommend this cake strongly to everyone, even if it's your first!
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.
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**
