This is one of those recipes I'd been wanting to try for a while and finally got around to making. And it didn't disappoint! If you like toffee you'll like this one. (I ended up giving most of it away because Tony...the hubby...doesn't like toffee and I really didn't want to have to eat the entire thing myself!) It is very moist and has wonderful flavor. Certainly one to give a try!
Heath Bar Cake
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups flour
8 tablespoons butter, softened
1 cup buttermilk
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
5-6 chocolate covered toffee bars (like Heath or Skor), chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl combine the brown sugar, white sugar, flour and butter. Crumble these ingredients together with a pastry blender or forks until the mixture is crumbly and coarse.
Remove 1/2 a cup of the crumbs to a small bowl and set aside. To the large bowl with the remaining crumbs, add the buttermilk, egg, vanilla, baking soda and salt. Mix well.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing it to the edges.
Chop up your toffee bars. The easiest way to do this, in my opinon, is to just leave them in their packaging and take the back end of a butter knife and hit it until it looks and feels all crumbly...like this!
Sprinkle the remaining crumbs over the cake...
and then the crumbled up toffee pieces.
Bake for 25-30 minutes until the center is not longer gooey but a toothpick inserted comes out with moist crumbs.
