This cake was really good. I omitted the raisins and nuts and baked in a 7x11 pan so had to bake a little longer. Frosted with kittencal's chocolate buttercream frosting as another reviewer had done and it was great.
What a find! I never thought of making a butterscotch cake. I was searching for a way to use up some butterscotch chips and found this treasure of a recipe. I toasted and chopped walnuts and omitted the raisins and topped with Kittencal's chocolate buttercream frosting. Delicious.
Absolutely loved it!! It's fabulous with or without nuts and raisens!! Thanks for sharing!!
