Easy cake to make. A substitute for the dry powdered sugar topping might be to add a teaspoon of vanilla and a tablespoon or so of milk to the powdered sugar to make a glaze topping.

my family makes this disappear every time I bake it. We use the butter brickle cake mix, or a yellow cake mix with pecan and butter rum flavoring added when the mixes aren't available.

A good moist cake, but I think more of the almond toffee pieces should be added, 'cause I couldn't taste them in this recipe. This tasted like a regular chocolate cake with pecans added.
