Butter Brickle Cake


Betty Crocker’s Butter Brickle Cake mix hasn’t been available since the 90s, but if you are one of the many people who miss it, this cake is the real deal. It’s an easy recipes that is made from a doctored box of yellow cake mix. The cake batter has both butterscotch pudding mix and toffee bits added in for maximum flavor.

The cake is finished with a whipped cream frosting covered with tons and tons of toffee bits. The buttery, sweet flavor is irresistible and the toffee bits add a fantastic crunch.

Since a box of cake mix is used, the cake batter can easily be prepared in under 10 minutes. It’s divided into 2 9-inch pans and baked for about 30 minutes.

Tips for making Butter Brickle Cake:

  • Be sure to use a box of Instant Pudding Mix, NOT the kind that needs to be cooked.
  • Be sure to let the cake layers cool completely before frosting.
  • Because of the frosting, this cake needs to be refrigerated. Cakes with whipped cream frosting are not great for serving in the heat. If you plan on bringing it to a cookout or potluck, be sure it can be kept in the air conditioning.
  • Your whipping cream will thicken more readily for the frosting if the bowl and the beaters are chilled before using them.

  1. It is even better with a Butter Pecan Cake Mix instead of just a Yellow Cake Mix. I use Caramel Frosting & sprinkle Toffee Bits on top.
