Thank you for reviewing this recipe.



Think its going to be superb baking cake with a sensational touch of NESTLÉ BUTTERFINGER candy. I m sure my kids are gonna enjoy it.

This cake was definitely delicious - not dry at all. I did increase the yogurt by maybe a quarter of a cup. I also made buttercream frosting for the top and sprinkled another crushed Butterfinger on top. It was a hit!

A little Dry

The best part of this cake by far was the topping. The actual cake was a little dry and didn't have much flavor to it. I will probably not make this again but might try to incorporate the butterfinger idea in another cake.

Butterfinger crumb cake

This cake was easy to make. I sprinkled about half of the topping on the cake and gently swirled throughout the cake. Then sprinkled the remaining on top. Very delicious.
