Butterfinger Cake

By Handed to Paula by a fan at a book signing.


1 box marble cake mix
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
1 jar prepared caramel topping
1 bag snack size Butterfinger candies
1 (8 oz.) container whipped topping
1 cup prepared chocolate syrup


Pre-heat oven to 350ºF.

Bake cake as directed in a 9x13 pan.  Let cool.  Poke holes all over cake.  In a medium-mixing bowl mix condensed milk and caramel topping.  Pour over cake.  Break Butterfinger candy and sprinkle half all over cake.  Top with whipped topping and sprinkle with remaining candy.  Drizzle with chocolate syrup.

Notes from the Paula Deen Test Kitchen: Get ready for a sweet tooth fix with this cake! Cake can also be baked in two round cake pans. We made ours in individual servings using a small spring form pan. We suggest using freshly whipped cream. (Paula’s recipe is 1 cup heavy cream and ¼ cup confectioners sugar whipped together)

I have been making cakes and decided to look at different things instead of the same old things. I made this one & my family told me that it was probably the best cake I've ever made! smile I have made it a few times now for different people & every one loves it! They are now making it for their others friends! I just had to leave a message saying this & it's so easy to make too! I'm making it again this weekend for a party! Highly suggest if you are wanting to make a really good easy different cake, try this one. You will be amazed!

I made this cake for a family birthday party. Man, was it easy to make! I could make the cake portion the day before & then finish it up the next morning with ease. Everyone loved it including me. I don't eat a lot of sweets but this I could keep eating! smile I don't think I have ever had everyone rave about a cake I've made like this one & I've made a few cakes in my day. I loved this one so much, I had to look the recipe up again because I'm making it for a friend's party. smile Thanks Paula!

I was raised in Johnson City , Tennessee,, my dad made a dish called Tomato pudding. He used day old biscuits, canned tomatoes and that’s all I remember. Do you have or maybe know someone that does know how to make it?  THANKS.
