Easy Peasy Toffee Chocolate Cake

Easy Peasy Toffee Cake by Nutmeg Nanny

This cake is awesome and crazy easy. No seriously, you don’t even need a mixer. Just a rubber spatula or whisk. This cake also has no eggs or milk so feel free to lick the bowl 🙂

I usually put toffee bits on top of the cake before I pop it into the oven but you can choose to leave it plain or add whatever mix in tickles your fancy. I know from experience it’s awesome with peanut butter chips! The thing I love best about the toffee is that some of the pieces sink deep into the cake so you get little bits of melted toffee deliciousness on top and inside the cake.  Oh did I talk about how moist this cake is? I swear I have never had a more moist cake. We ate the cake right out of the pan (who needs plates?) and not a piece was wasted. I hope you all love the cake as much as we do 🙂 Enjoy!!!

    i’m with you–why dirty up dishes when you can just eat straight from the pan? the notion of gooey bits of toffee scattered throughout is really appealing (as is the fact that one can lick the batter bowl without fear of illness). great recipe, brandy!

    Moist and delicious…my favorite kind of chocolate cake! I love how you added toffee, what a great way to add a lot of flavor! I’ll admit I’m somewhat of a batter fiend (for cookies, brownies, and cakes) and the presence of raw egg doesn’t usually deter me (much 😉 ) from indulging in a sample, but knowing that there’s no egg is like a license to enjoy it even more! 🙂

    That looks so delicious, I think the combination of chocolate and toffee is the key to this wonderful cake. Surely no one will ever resist this kind of cake.
