Holy Cow Cake

Holy Cow!


The dessert recipe you chose from the yet-to-be released Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Quick and Easy Autumn Recipes made for one yummy treat for this Early Bird Reviewer's family.

Psst... Have you entered to win Quick and Easy Autumn BEFORE you can buy it? Whatcha waitin' for? Just a few days left to enter. 

This super rich and sweet cake takes about every wonderful ingredient in the world and puts it together in a pan to make an oeey gooey cake that certainly makes you exclaim... HOLY COW!

You just bake up a chocolate cake in a 9 x13 pan

Meanwhile, combine 1 jar of caramel sauce and 1 can of sweetened condensed milk.

This is the ooey gooey part...

Or the oooh ahhhh factor ;)

Now while that cake is nice and hot, poke holes in it.

Now pour that gooey awesomeness all on top.

And crunch up half a butterfinger bar and sprinkle on top.

Now chill baby for 2 hrs in the fridge

When the cake is nice and cool, take a brick of cream cheese, a tub of cool whip and 1 cup of sugar and mix them up into a heavenly icing.

And yes I used the low fat versions... trimming the calories/fat where I can... because HOLY COW there is a lot of awesome sweet stuff in this baby ;)

You know where this is headed... pour it on top baby...

Oh yeah...

Now sprinkle the other half of the Butterfinger on top.

Now cut into the awesomeness...

14 GOODe Thoughts:

Oh my! I believe I've had this cake before and I believe it goes really well with some red wine:)

Sound and looks real good like moist cakes.

this looks like a Paula Deen recipe I have made many times but it goes by another name (better not put it on here....you probably know the name), but she uses toffee chips...yummy. I will try Butterfinger, one of my hubby's favorites.

What a cake!
I love your w.w. cream cheese :)
Way to save on calories :)

Oh, I am so making this cake!! I have to change the candy though, my husband is allergic to peanut butter, so I have to think of something else that would work. Oh my, I am so thinking dessert for dinner tonight!!

Yum! I have to try this!

Holy Cow is right...thats what I'd be if I started eating this! Because I wouldn't want to stop! (lol)
