5 (1.4 ounce) bars
chocolate covered toffee bars, chopped
chopped, unsalted dry-roasted peanuts
This is quite possibly my favorite recipe I've ever found on this site! The only alterations I made, is I use the bag of already chopped toffee chips and some chocolate chips!
I expected to LOVE this cake...and was underwhelmed. The flavor was okay, but something about using peanuts kind of ruined it for me. There are so many great coffee cakes out there. This isn't one of them!
This is one of the best coffee cakes that I have baked. I have made the recipe 3 times in the past week. Once for my husband and myself, and twice to take to an outing of women golfers. Everyone loved it. Very easy, except for "smashing" the toffee bars...that required a little more effort.
I made this for my husband to take to work for a going away function and it was a huge hit. Very easy to make, tastes very yummy too!!! :)
I made this for my boyfriend who loves coffee cake, i did increase the flour and decrease the milk each by only about 1/4 cup, this cake was delicious and stayed moist and fresh for several days!! I will make this again!
Very good. I made it the day prior, based on other reviewers stating that it was very moist even a day or two after prep. So moist, that it did crumble a bit when handled (oven temp/ingredients/baking time were right on). I may increase the flour / decrease the milk a little next time to firm it up just a bit more. I also substituted pre-crushed toffee bits (usually in the baking aisle by the chocolate chips) instead of crushing the bars, and substituted chopped pecans for the peanuts. Personal preference. Pecans just seem to have a sweeter flavor to them, and I think lend themselves well to a baked dessert recipe. I can't imagine this being bad with any kind of nut, however. Except pine nuts ;-). Mmmmm.......mmmmmmmm........toffee.
I made this coffee cake this past weekend. I wasn't overwhelmed with the taste and felt that it was lacking something. I think if I was ever to make it again, I would be sure to serve it alongside some caramel sauce to give it some extra flavour.
Excellent recipe! This is so good the first day, but is sooooo much better the next day and stays moist for several days. I used packaged toffee bits to avoid breaking up the candy bars. We prefer the bits w/o chocolate for this recipe. We love this recipe and people with whom we've shared the cake beg us to make it again and again.
