Rich and decadent this Butterfinger Cake will give your favorite candy bar a grown up taste.
My son recently had a birthday and while that was not a complete surprise, the fact that he asked for a cake was. As I have said before we are not cake people, I can count maybe three times that my son has asked for cake for his birthday. And not just any cake, a Butterfinger Cake in honor of his favorite candy bar.
This Butterfinger cake is something that would make any Butterfinger lover happy. A chocolate buttermilk cake, peanut butter buttercream and loads of crushed Butterfingers make this cake a decadent treat because sometimes we need that in our lives.
The cake is chocolate buttermilk cake that is moist and flavorful. The peanut butter and candy pieces need something to balance them out and this cake can stand up to the richness of the frosting while still giving plenty of chocolate flavor.
Using the Butterfingers pieces between the layers helps to make sure that every bite is going to have some crunch as well as the smoothness of the frosting. crushed pieces of butterfingers are pressed into the sides and along the top giving this Butterfinger Cake the perfect amount of Butterfinger Cake.
And the frosting? Perfection, sheer perfection. Smooth peanut butter blends with the butter and powdered sugar into something magical. I put some of the extra frosting on some graham cracker sheets and my piano students gobbled them up. I may or may not have just eaten it by the spoonful as well.
