Whenever I am home, we eat Butterfinger. The crisp, crunchiness of this texture makes recipes and baking delicious. Once a week, I do a big shopping trip and stock up on all my baking needs, flour, sugar, butter, eggs, and cream.

This fun-sized Butterfinger can be found in the candy aisle. Here’s a recipe for Butterfinger cake you’ll love.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do Butterfingers work?

Although I am surprised when readers ask me that question, I’ve published two other recipes with Butterfingers, and I’ve always been asked that question. It seems that Butterfingers are a uniquely American treat. Butterfingers are candy bars covered in milk chocolate with a crunchy peanut butter center. Wunderbars are apparently the Canadian and UK versions.

Does Devil’s Food Cake have to be used?

Sadly, no. In this recipe, Devil’s food is so chocolatey and rich that it just has a slight bitterness that offsets the sweet topping and caramel filling. You can really use anything you like in this recipe. I probably wouldn’t go for strawberry or raspberry blue. The vanilla or marble flavors are also safe choices if you’re not a fan of butterfinger cake.

Why do we eat poke cakes?

Poke cakes are pretty much what they sound like. The cake is poked with holes with a fork or thin wooden spoon, usually on the top. In most cases, it is filled with sweetened condensed milk, pudding, or Jell-O, but sometimes with jam or jellied fruit. To enhance the flavor of the best father day cake, extra flavor is infused throughout. A slice of cake will reveal little rivulets of gooey deliciousness throughout.

Is it possible to freeze Butterfinger Cake?

You can do that! Cake and topping can be frozen separately or as a fully assembled dessert. You can freeze this for up to 3 months in an airtight container. Put the frozen food in the refrigerator overnight to thaw.
