There must be an error in the recipe....way too much oil but I used that amount anyway. Didn't think about it being too much until I looked at the instructions on the cake mix box. I wish I had read the reviews or other recipes before using 1.25 cups of oil.
Wow, lots of raves for this cake! I brought it to work for a birthday gathering, along with some other goodies, and this was definitely the most commented on. You would think that the finished cake would be kinda goopy because of all the caramel and milk poured onto it, but it soaks in really nicely. I really liked how the cream cheese transforms the Cool Whip (one person even thought it was real whipped cream frosting!). Just some prep notes: the store didn't have 12oz tubs of Cool Whip, so I used a 16oz tub instead; I used a 12.5oz bag of fun-size Butterfingers; I think there's a typo with the oil amount, so I only used 1/2 cup oil as recommended on the back of the cake mix box. Loved how easy this was to put together, too. I'll be keeping this recipe on hand for sure, thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2012
This is my absolute favorite cake! This is the recipe from the Cake Dr book, but I misplaced my book so I am so thankful to find the recipe here. Such an easy cake & perfect for a hot summer day.
Just delicious and so easy!!!!!
My kids always request this cake for birthdays..instead of butterfingers we use heath bar bits found in the gro by the chocolate chips..its super yummy..
Very easy to make, great tasting. the milk and topping make the cake super moist. Thanks for the recipe!!!
Made this for a work birthday party and had people asking for the recipe. Very good!! Thanks!
This cake is fantastic, and, to top it off, it is so simple to make! This will, definately, be made over and over again at our house!! In fact, I am planning on making it again next week for a cake-walk at my daugher's school. I chose to make this cake for the Cake-a-Thon in honor of Chef-I-Am. Thanks MA HIKER!
