I just love a easy cake recipe that uses common ingredients that I can get for free or cheap using coupons. I stumbled upon this great recipe from TheCountryCook.net and knew it was a recipe I was going to have to share with our readers here at HCW!
This cake uses all ingredients straight from the pantry, items many of us have in our stockpiles.
- 1 box marble cake mix
- (ingredients listed on back of cake mix box – eggs, oil & water)
- 1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 jar (12 oz.) caramel topping
- 1 large bar (or a handful of snack size bars) Butterfinger candy
- 1 (8 oz.) tub whipped topping, thawed
- chocolate syrup to drizzle on top (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F degrees
Spray 9×13 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Prepare cake as directed on back of box. Pour into baking dish and bake according to cooking times on back of box.
When it comes out of oven, allow to cool for just a few minutes.
In a medium bowl, combine sweetened condensed milk with caramel topping.
Now, start poking holes in the cake with a fork. Lots of holes! You want plenty of crevices for the caramel mixture to go into.
Drizzle caramel mixture over cake.
Put cake in the fridge to let it finish cooling. Once it is cooled, spread whipped topping over entire cake. Then sprinkle with crushed Butterfinger candy.
Keep cake in the fridge until ready to serve (because of the whipped topping).
If you like, sprinkle some extra crushed Butterfinger bars on top before serving or drizzle with a little chocolate syrup, then dig in!
Cook’s Notes: This cake is also very good if you use a Devil’s Food Cake mix.
