Sensational Cinnamon Toffee Crunch Cake

Deneece Gursky


My daughter Brittney saw a new cake mix at the store the other day. It was a cinnamon swirl cake. She didnt buy it and the next time she went down to get it they had none. So she and I headed to the kitchen to try to replicate it. The cake turned out very moist and delicious and was a big hit at home and at the american legion that my dad is cammander at. (we made two and i sent one down to include as a dessert for their steak night)

Cinnamon swirled into a cake with just a touch of apple flavor. Add a bit of toffee to the middle filling and you have a cake destined for greatness : )

  • 4In smaller bowl mix together brown sugar, and cinnamon. spoon this over the batter in the large bowl.
  • 5Swirl the cinnamon and brown sugar mix thru the batter just a few times. (it will mix into batter more as you pour it into cake pans, you dont want to turn the batter into all cinnamon flavored)
  • 6Pour batter into cake pans and place in preheated 350 degree oven. Bake about 25 to 30 minutes or until toothpick in center comes out clean
  • 7Remove pans and allow to cool on counter for about 20 minutes (they should still be a bit warm)
  • 8Slide a rubber spatula around sides of pans to help release cake from pan. Invert first cake onto cake plate so the flat side is up.
  • 9cover the first cake top with whipped whipped cream frosting
  • 10Now sprinkle the heath toffee bits over the frosting on first cake
  • 11Invert second cake onto first one (second cake should be flat side down) gently press cakes together to "attach"
  • 12Frost entire cake with whipped whipped cream frosting and decorate with remaining toffee bits. Heat hot caramel in microwave for about 20 sec or until you can spoon it up. Using a teaspoon drizzle caramel across cake.
