Happy Foodie Friday Folks! I know, you’re all full up from holiday feasts, but here at Dad’s Blog there’s always room for more dessert! In that spirit, and in case you’re looking for one more treat to “wow” your friends in the coming days, today we’re going to learn how to make a warm, feel-good treat everyone loves…
Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake
The Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake is a much beloved dessert at Magic Kingdom, which you can find at Liberty Tree Tavern… but only at lunch! So remember that when making your Advanced Dining Reservations at this popular, colonial-inspired Liberty Square table service spot!
The term “cake” here is a bit of a misnomer here, as this dessert is really more of a crispy-on-the-outside, warm-and-melty-on-the-inside cookie. If that’s not enough, it’s piled high with creamy vanilla ice cream, and drizzled with sticky toffee and rich chocolate.
Mmmm!!! I could really go for one of these right now – it’s the perfect way to cap off the indulgence of the holiday season! If you’re craving this WDW treat too – make one at home with this great recipe!
1 box golden yellow cake mix
1/2 cup softened salted butter
1 package softened cream cheese
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup salted butter
1 lb sifted icing sugar
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup Heath Bar pieces (or Skor pieces in Canada!)
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Combine cake mix, egg, and 1/2 cup butter with a low-speed hand mixer until well incorporated.
Grease one round cake pan (or a cupcake pan for single servings!) and spread the mixture evenly in the pan(s).
Beat the cream cheese on high speed until smooth, then slowly incorporate the 2 eggs and vanilla extract.
Beat in the butter, then slowly stir in the icing sugar. Once mixed thoroughly, gently fold in chocolate chips and Heath/Skor pieces.
Add the second batter on top of the first layer in your greased pan(s).
Bake until cake is nearly done but still slightly gooey. This usually takes 25-35 minutes for a muffin pan and 40-60 minutes for a cake pan. Your oven may vary, so keep you eye on it!
