Teri's notes for this recipe:
The first cake my daughter ever baked ... a family favorite and too easy since you start with a mix!

Teri’s mention that this is the first cake her daughter ever made inspired me to get my grandson, Connor, involved!  He and I have cooked together since he could walk and it's a really precious time for us.  We had a ton of fun preparing this recipe together, and the finished cake was a big hit with the entire Kitchen Crew!

I tried this last night and was really blown away. I'm not the biggest butterscotch fan, but this really won me over. Thanks for posting!

Thanks for the great comments! Like I said, it has become a family favorite ... and it's WAY too easy ... and like you, Mary, I am not a huge butterscotch fan either, but there's something about this ...

And thanks, Janet, for the Blue Ribbon! I'm so pleased!

How long do you bake it for? I'm pretty sure it's the usual, using a toothpick, but when should you begin doing that after? 35, 40, 45 minutes? Thank you
user Teri Dunaway typistma - Apr 5, 2010
Theresa, you can check after 45 min., but it generally takes close to an hour, depending on your oven!

I first got this recipe from Ms. Magazine and have been making it for years. Mine is about the same except I add 1 cup chopped roasted pecans.
