Favorite Ingredients Friday - 4th of July Edition

A few weeks ago, we tried this awesome cake at our friends' house. The next time I went shopping, I bought the ingredients and made it for Jim's Father's Day dinner. The store was having a 2 for 1 cake mix sale, so I had to buy two boxes. I think I'll make another version for the 4th. I made the first one with the caramel topping and Fluffy Cream Cheese Frosting. This time I'm going to try the fudge topping with the whipped topping as frosting. The recipe is also on the back of the Betty Crocker German Chocolate cake mix box.

Better Than Almost Anything Cake

1 box German chocolate cake mix
Water, vegetable oil and eggs called for on cake mix box
1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
1 jar (16 to 17 oz) caramel, butterscotch or fudge topping
1 container Fluffy Whipped White Frosting or (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 bag (8 oz) toffee chips or bits

1. Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Bake cake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan.
2. Poke top of warm cake every 1/2 inch with handle of wooden spoon. Drizzle milk evenly over top of cake; let stand until milk has been absorbed into cake. Drizzle with caramel topping. Run knife around sides of pan to loosen cake. Cover and refrigerate about 2 hours or until chilled.
3. Spread whipped topping over top of cake. Sprinkle with toffee chips. Store covered in refrigerator.

I have made a very similar cake -- with the whipped topping, not frosting. And it is delicious! This is a great idea to take to a July 4th gathering. People love it.

Happy 4th!

Oh yeah, I've had this cake before...only I know it by a different name. ;) I've found it tastes best if you leave it in the fridge overnight before serving...the cake gets nice and soaked with the carmel & milk.

Thanks so much for participating in my Favorite Ingredients Friday- 4th of July Edition recipe exchange. I do appreciate it.

I hope to see you again next Friday!
