This cake was definitely delicious - not dry at all. I did increase the yogurt by maybe a quarter of a cup. I also made buttercream frosting for the top and sprinkled another crushed Butterfinger on top. It was a hit!

A little Dry

The best part of this cake by far was the topping. The actual cake was a little dry and didn't have much flavor to it. I will probably not make this again but might try to incorporate the butterfinger idea in another cake.

This cake was easy to make. I sprinkled about half of the topping on the cake and gently swirled throughout the cake. Then sprinkled the remaining on top. Very delicious.

I made this cake for a cousins lucheon we have once a month. It was very easy to make and the house smelled great from the cake. It was a big hit, as a matter of fact they all wanted to skip lunch and just have dessert.

I made this cake for my sister. It was a luncheon at her work and the response was amazing. People just were drawn to it and the taste was excellent what I am told. I did not get a chance to taste it but the response was great at the end of the luncheon there was nothing left of the cake, so I definitely will be making it very soon for my family.
