Chocolate, Banana and Butterscotch Cake


My Brother and Sister-in-law invited my family over for dinner this weekend for a wonderful rice and curry meal. I decided that I would bring a sweet treat for dessert and I simply took some ingredients that I had on hand and put this cake together.  I had no idea if it would work or how it would taste, but I love to experiment. When it came out the oven it smelled wonderful and as the cook I had to do a quick taste test.  I was overwhelmed with how tasty this cake was, but then I wondered if once the cake cooled down to room temperature if it would taste just as good.  After dinner we served the cake and everyone loved it.  So I knew I had to share this crazy, yet simple recipe for everyone to taste this wonderful combination of flavors.

1 box devil's food cake mix
3 eggs
1 cup milk
1/2 cup of canola oil
3 ripe bananas
1 (11oz) bag of butterscotch chips (found in the baking aisle near the chocolate chips)

Use an electric blender to mix together the bananas, milk, oil and eggs.  Then add the box of cake mix and mix until smooth.  Finally toss in 1 cup (or half a bag) of the butterscotch chips and mix into the cake batter.  

Then spray or grease a 9x13 baking pan and pour batter into one even layer.  Take a large handful of butterscotch chips and place on top of batter.

Place into a 350 degree oven and bake for 35-40 minutes or until cake is set in the middle.  Serve hot or at room temperature with vanilla ice cream if you desire.  I also melted some butterscotch chips (the remainder from my bag) and made a sauce to pour over some of the pieces.  Enjoy.

  1. There's nothing like a dessert that's quick to put together, delicious in taste and looks like it took hours. This is definitely that. Great job!

  2. I'd be inviting you for dinner all of the time! :D

  3. I'm not the biggest butterscotch fan but these look incredible, Ramona!

  4. looks wonderful and yummy butterscotch!

  5. Ramona brought a piece of cake for her father and I to eat and I have say
    that it was out of this world - I am proud that she has turned out to be
    such a fantastic cook. Normally I do not care to eat cake but I would love
    to eat another piece of this as it was delicious.

  6. I love if doing experiment and turn out really good,welldone :) simply delicious cake !!

  7. This cake looks great. I have yet to find gluten free butterscotch chips. Or anything butterscotch that is gluten free. My daughter misses butterscotch.

  11. Be on the lookout for your dinner invitation from me!!!!

  12. Woe, your cake looks so moist and scrumptious!! I'd have trouble stopping after one slice :)

  13. Wow Ramona...what a great combo of flavors here! I've had butterscotch on my brain lately. And of course chocolate and bananas are a match made in heaven for me! The cake looks so moist and I bet everyone really enjoyed it! : )

  14. Oh! These ones are butterscotch chips! I thought it's peanut butter chips. =P They are included in one of Trader Joe's Trail mix and I had no idea it was butterscotch chips. They are so good, and I wasn't aware that you can actually buy these in bags (see this happens when you don't bake often...). This cake looks moist and delish!!

  15. Yum, this looks so indulgent! I always love what you can do with a box cake mix! (And I'm a follower of everything!)

  16. Just made this cake and it was melt in your mouth deliciousness. I will be making again and again.
