Butterscotch Cake with Caramel Topping

If you are a Harry Potter fan you probably have heard of Butterbeer. It’s the delightful butterscotch and caramel drink which Hogworth students enjoy on their trips to The Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade.

Real Life Butterbeer

Over the years there have lots of online recipes as well as butterbeer products to hit the market. It was only recently however I came across a Butterbeer soda in my local grocery store.

Akram's Ideas: Butterscotch beer
I was delighted flying cauldron butterscotch beer at my local store and couldn’t resist get a case and trying it out, all while watching Harry Potter of course.

While the soda was good, it was way too sweet. That’s when I had the idea to use it in a cake. Yes, Butterbeer cake, what could be better for a holiday dish? 

Butterscotch Cake

To make this cake I started by looking up a soda cake recipe. From there I made some changes for flavoring my very own butterbeer cake.

It’s a Quickie Bake

This cake really is a quickie bake. It takes almost no time to whip together. The longest part is just waiting for it to bake.

This cake came out so pretty

I took the finished cake to work and was complimented by all my co-workers on how moist the cake was. The pudding, I’ll credit, for making it so moist.

The cake was so easy and tasty I made a second one for Thanksgiving. Let’s just say it was gone before my pies.

It was so good it was gone in no time

While I like butterscotch I’ve never really had a lot of it, since it can be a bit overwhelming at times. This cake, however, has just the right hint of both butterscotch and caramel flavoring. It’s so good I could totally see it being served at the Three Broomsticks, haha!
