Tempting Toffee Cake

23 Sep

This is a recipe I found on Pinterest.  There was not really a “real” recipe, just kind of a rough guideline.  Not even a name, so I made one up!  I made this tonight as a treat for my kids, my youngest son, who is 3, devoured it.  I have to say I had a small slice, as I am trying to be good.  I just recently became an Independent Team Beachbody Coach, and I am trying not to eat junk.  This cake is good, and I don’t like yellow cake, we will see how my will power stands up against this cake.  On Wednesday I should receive my Shakeology, which will be an extra help to ward off the cravings.  Now for the recipe.

Tempting Toffee Cake

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 jar caramel ice cream topping
  • 1 tub of cool whip
  • crushed toffee or butterfinger candy (I used Heath toffee bits) you can find them in the baking section, yes I am lazy.

Mix the yellow cake mix, milk, eggs and melted butter blend like you would a normal cake mix.  Pour the batter into a 13 x 9 cake pan, bake per instructions on box.  Let cake cool for 10 mins, poke holes in cake while it is still warm, pour the sweetened condensed milk and caramel over the cake.  Let cake cool completely.  Cover cake with cool-whip, sprinkle with toffee bits and serve. Voila!  Extremely moist and delicious!


Apple Cake

19 Aug



This recipe was brought in to work by one of our volunteers.  She is the sweetest lady.  I am not a big fan of anything with apples, just never have been.  This is really good, it is very moist and dense.  I made it tonight for my husband, as he tends to like apple things, like apple cobbler, apple pie, etc.   I served it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and it was perfect.




  • 3 eggs
  • 1 c. oil
  • 2 c. sugar
  • 1 tsp. soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 c. plain flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3 c. peeled, chopped apples
  • 1 c. nuts

Beat eggs, add oil, then sugar and vanilla.  Sift flour, soda, salt and cinnamon.  Add to egg mixture, fold in apples and nuts.  Bake at 375° for about an hour.
I  have picky eaters, so I only put in 1/2 cup of pecan chips (you can use whatever nuts you like), and I ended up taking it out of the oven at just over 45 minutes and probably could have taken it out 5 minutes earlier.  You have to check it every so often.  I served it warm, with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.  It is delicious.  My 3 yr. old son said, “Mommy can you thank that nice girl at work for the cake.”.   The lady that gave me this recipe is in her 70’s so I am sure she will be tickled when I relay his message.  Happy Baking!
