Butterbeer Cake Recipe

I once saw this and now, I just came across it again so since I haven’t made a post on this blog in a while, I thought I would share. The below content is from HERE.

For the cake:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp butterscotch topping (I used Smucker’s)
  • 1/2 cup cream soda
  • Extra butterscotch topping, for decorating

For the buttercream frosting (makes enough to cover two 6″ cakes, with a layer of frosting in between cake layers):

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup butterscotch topping
  • 1 Tbsp cream soda
  • 1 lb powdered sugar

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and spray two 6″ or 8″ pans with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder.

  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars.
  • Add in the eggs, vanilla extract, milk, butterscotch topping, and cream soda.
  • Add the dry ingredients half at a time, beating until smooth.
  • Pour into the prepared pans. For 6″ cakes, bake 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. (You may need to adjust the baking time for 8″ cakes.) Cool completely before frosting.
  • To make the frosting, beat together the butter, butterscotch topping, and cream soda. Add in the sugar and beat until smooth.
  • Decorate the cake as desired.
  • Drizzle with the extra butterscotch topping – it really does add a little something extra!
Just a possible idea if you like baking or if you’re looking for a way to earn some bonus points. Try out this recipe and bring in to Harry Potter Club to share.
