Sweet, buttery cake filled with

and even more Heath bits.
That's what you'll find in
Liberty Tree Tavern's
Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake.

Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake
*serves 8

Bottom Layer Ingredients:

1 box yellow cake mix
1 stick butter, softened to room temperature
1 egg


   Preheat oven to 325-degrees.

  Mix the above 3 ingredients in large bowl with electric mixer. Batter will be thick, similar to cookie dough. Spread evenly (filling halfway) into each compartment of a large muffin cup pan. Set aside.


Top Layer Ingredients:

1 (8 ounce) brick cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter, softened and cubed
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup Heath Bar toffee bits
1 (16 ounce) bag powdered sugar


vanilla ice cream
chocolate syrup
caramel syrup
Heath Bar toffee bits


   With an electric mixer, cream butter and cream cheese. Add in eggs, one at a time. Mix in vanilla. Blend well on medium speed. Slowly add in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, scraping sides of bowl occasionally.

   Once the batter is mixed well, reduce speed to low and pour in chocolate chips and Heath Bar pieces. Blend just until pieces are incoorporated into all the batter; do not overmix.

  Spread the batter (will be thick) evenly over the first cake layers in pan. Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes or until done. Remove from oven and let cool in pan for 30 minutes.

  Remove each muffin and place onto individual plates. Top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream then drizzle with both chocolate and caramel syrups. Finish off with a dusting of Heath Bar pieces. Enjoy!!

  1. Oh my, you totally made my husband's birthday and my daughter has already requested these for her next birthday (more than 6 months away). Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake is a dessert we have always loved and raved about when we've gotten home from WDW -- to be able to make it any time I like is just too wonderful! I did end up having too much of the second layer topping, and there's not much to do with it leftover, if you had any ideas? Either way, love the blog and will keep coming back -- food is one of the best things about WDW!
