Butterscotch Chocolate Cake

by Kristy on September 15, 2010

This is a great recipe if you’re baking with kids.  The boxed cake mix makes this dessert very convenient to make and what little one doesn’t like working with Cool Whip, ice cream topping and Butterfingers? You’ll find adults like this cake just as much as your children!

1 package (18-1/4 ounces) chocolate cake mix
1 jar (17-19 ounces) butterscotch ice cream topping (I used a caramel butterscotch and it turned out great!)
1 carton (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 1/2 – 3 butterfinger candy bars (2.1 ounces each) coarsely crushed

1. Bake cake according to package directions, using a 13×9 inch baking pan.
2. Cool on wire rack for 30 minutes.
3. Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, poke 12 holes in warm cake.
4. Pour butterscotch topping over cake and cool completely.
5. Spread with whipped topping.
6. Sprinkle with crushed candy bars.
7. Refridgerate for at least 2 hours before serving (and refridgerate any leftovers)
8. Enjoy!

Triple-Layer Banana Cake & PB Frosting:)

by Kristy on September 3, 2010

This cake is just like eating homemade banana bread, but with the added bonus of peanut butter frosting. I sent it over to a few friends and they gave it a thumbs up (so did I!).3/4 cup butter, softened
2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 3)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 cup butter milk

1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
4 tbs butter, softened
4 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
10-12 tbs milk (keeping adding until desired consistency is reached)
Peanut chips, optional

***I purchased a cake leveler for $3.00. It’s very helpful when splitting a cake.

1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
2. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
3. Beat in bananas and vanilla.
4. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
5. Gradually add to creamed mixture alternating with buttermilk.
6. Pour into 3 greased and floured 9-in. round baking pans.
7. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
8. Cool for 10 minutes then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
9. For frosting, beat peanut butter and butter until smooth.
10. Beat in confectioners’ sugar and enough milk to achieve spreading consistency.
11. Frost between layers and over top and sides of cake.
12. Garnish with peanut topping, if desired.
13. Enjoy!
