Reading this recipe made my mouth water--I can't wait for a cool front to come our way so I can actually bake it! Vanilla and butterscotch batters marble together in a moist pound cake--yum! *From The Butterscotch Lover's Cookbook.*

I made this cake over the weekend. I followed the recipe. The taste was out of this world! But it got stuck in the pan. So I suggest making it in a 9 x 13 cake pan. Put the vanilla batter on the bottom and butterscotch batter on top. Garnish with Cool whip and butterscotch topping.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F.
  2. Grease a Bundt pan.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until the sugar is completely incorporated.
  4. Blend in the eggs, then the milk and vanilla.
  5. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt; add to the creamed mixture, stirring just until combined.
  6. Transfer half the batter to a clean bowl; stir in the butterscotch topping, candy, and baking soda.
  7. Drop several tablespoons of the butterscotch batter into the prepared pan; cover with tablespoons of the vanilla batter.
  8. Continue layering the batters this way until all has been used.
  9. With a knife, gently swirl the batters together for a marbled effect.
  10. Bake for 70-75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the highest part of the cake comes out clean.
  11. Cool in the pan for 15-20 minutes, loosen edges with a butter knife, and invert onto a wire rack and cool completely.
  12. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.
