Good luck butta-what

It’s that time again … time for yet another tried-and-true recipe from the Emjayandthem vault.

One so simple, so good, so to-heck-with-New-Years-resolutions-where’s-the-chocolate kinda good.

It’s my Butterfinger Cake.

You read that right:  Butterfinger.  Cake.

Mmmm hmm.

Have Mercy!

Have Mercy!

So here’s the thing. I’m not a chocolate girl. I’m a potato-chip-and-dip kinda girl.   But, lots of my friends and family are admitted chocolate fiends and since I like to mess around in my Kitchen and get ‘er done, here’s what came of it.

Yep, goofing off in the kitchen and making up something fun brings out the kid in me.

Back to the cake, Jake.

So, a few years ago I came up with this lil beauty.  At the time, youngest boy had a severe hankering for Butterfingers.  And he had a birthday coming up.  Easy, peasy, pudding and pie, this Mom’s gonna bake that boy a cake that’ll make his toes curl.

And it did.

And it wouldn’t be very nice of me to keep it all to myself, now would it?

Here’s what you need to make your very own Butterfinger cake:

You thought this was going to be complicated? Naw ..

You thought this was going to be complicated? Naw ..

  • 1 box of Yellow Cake Mix, any Brand.
  • 1 box of Butterscotch Instant Jell-O Pudding
  • 3 Butterfinger candy bars
  • 1 jar of Chocolate frosting

Ready?

Grandma Pearl gave me that mixer in 1981

Prepare the cake as directed but also add the Butterscotch pudding mix. Mix all ingredients.

Pour one half of the mixture into a well greased Bundt pan (you could also use a 9 x13 pan) then top with 2 crumbled Butterfinger bars.

Oh yeah

Oh yeah

Pour the rest of the batter on top, be sure to cover the Butterfinger bits.

Cover it up as best as you can

Bake according to the directions on the cake mix box .. roughly 26-28 min.

Remove from oven and let sit in the pan for about 4 minutes (this is important, if you don’t let it sit it will fall apart when you try to remove it from the pan.)

C'mere sweetness

Take a butter knife and loosen all around the Bundt pan (don’t forget the center).  Place a baking rack on top and flip the whole thing over; gently shake the pan and watch the cake slide out.

Hello? Is it me you're looking for?

Let the cake cool on the baking rack — about 45 min or until your kid or spouse walks by and asks if they can eat it yet.

Nuke (microwave) a can of pre-made frosting (be sure to remove the lid and the foil liner) for 30 – 40 seconds, just enough to warm it and make it pour-able.

Pour it all over that beautiful cake; get jiggy with it.

Boom-chicka-mow-mow!

Boom-chicka-mow-mow!

Ready?  Crumble the last Butterfinger. Eat whatever falls off.

Load up the top of that cake with more crumbled Butterfinger pieces

Last step.

Good luck.

What?

Yep, good luck getting this cake out of the house.  Your church group, office mates and Super Bowl watchers are gonna have to settle for something else.

You're weclome.

Good Luck Butta What.  You’re welcome.

Have any fun, easy recipes to share?
