I'm probably not the best person to review a recipe for Butterscotch Cake since I'm not a fan of butterscotch - it's difficult to be objective. That said, I took into consideration a couple of reviewers' comments - the cake was dry, the cake wasn't butterscotchy enough - and made a couple of changes to address them. To add more butterscotch flavor I used a butter pecan cake mix (just so happened to have one on hand) and substituted 1/4 cup of butterscotch schnapps for part of the milk called for. An alternative might be to add some Watkins caramel flavoring or rum extract, maybe a teaspoon. I couldn't see the point of using egg whites and wasting four egg yolks - this isn't a white cake. So I used whole eggs - two instead of the four egg whites called for and a third for added moistness. While the cake was cooling I kind of just winged it and threw together a butterscotch glaze using butterscotch chips, heavy cream, and just a little butter and corn syrup (for gloss). The verdict? The small changes must have worked because it's moist and butterscotchy, so butterscotch lovers (like Hubs) will be pleased!

This was just okay for us. I think it has to do with personal preference and the butterscotch taste was just okay to us. Thanks for letting us try

Love this recipe! So easy and quick! I don't care for the confectioner's sugar, so I used melted cream cheese frosting as a drizzle topping, delicious!

I've tried several butterscotch cake recipies and this is the best. This cake is very easy and very impressive. I like to add a glaze made with melted butterscotch chips. This is definitely one to try!

This recipe is so easy and I have made it several times. Sometimes I keep it simple and opt for powdered sugar on top. Other times I make my own butterscotch glaze with melted butterscotch chips mixed with some milk and powdered sugar until reaching desired consistency. I make sure I have these ingredients on hand when I am craving an easy cake that is tasty too! My boyfriend loves this cake.

This cake was awesome!!!! I made it for a large family gathering and everyone loved it! I made a glaze with the butterscotch chips, powdered sugar and milk and then I just bought a can of chcolate frosting and microwaved it to melt it and then poured that on top of the butterscotch glaze. It was absolutely TDF! I will be making it again!!

I'm not a huge butterscotch fan, either, but I have been on a mission for the last few months for a good recipe and this is it! It was quick and easy and good! No frosting even required! Gonna' test this on my family over the holidays! I used yellow butter cake mix.
