Candy bar cake

Just an easy coffee cake. I used some strange mini candy bars, and although the cake tasted fine, something like Snickers would have worked much better. I think I might actually try that some day. Original recipe is from a cookbook called "Mind-blowing cakes from scratch" by Joan Johnson.

You will need:

  • 3.5 standard size candy bars with soft filling (or 8 small ones)
  • 150 g butter or margarine
  • 1.5 dl sugar 
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 dl all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1.5 dl milk
  • 1 dl chopped nuts (optional)
Prep time: 20 minutes
Baking time: about an hour

What to do:

  • Grease a cake tin and line with baking paper.
  • Melt the candy bars and half the butter in a saucepan or microwave. Set aside.
The candy bars I used
  • In a bowl, mix the rest of the butter with the sugar until creamy.
  • Add the eggs one by one, mixing well after each addition.
  • Combine the flour with the baking powder, then add to the batter along with the milk.
  • Stir in the melted candy and butter
  • Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 60-65 minutes, in an oven preheated to 200 C.
  • Cool before serving, then decorate with some whipped cream, frosting, chocolate sauce, icing sugar, or just pieces of candy bars like I did.
