Many a time I need a cake for the hubby for one of his meetings. I am not above asking friends for a good recipe as I do a fair amount of baking for him. This time I found one thanks to my friend Vicki. I “borrowed” the easy butterscotch cake recipe on her blog and just changed it a very little.  This Butterscotch Chewy Cake was a big hit! Oh, and in addition to making delicious cakes my friend Vicki designs and creates beautiful jewelry. You can find her pieces in her shop, Orion Designs. Vicki has designed several pieces for me, including a favorite boulder opal necklace that I wear very often.

  • Remove the cake from the oven and cool on a wire rack.

I did dust the cake with powdered sugar before I sent it off with the hubby for his meeting.

How Was the Easy Butterscotch Cake Recipe?

The hubby brought me a piece home from his meeting so I was able to taste this cake; that doesn’t always happen. It’s a delightful cake that’s not too sweet and wonderfully chewy. The nuts add a lovely crunch. The butterscotch flavor really comes through. You don’t need a big piece to be satisfied. It would be wonderful with a glass of cold milk or hot tea.
