Butterscotch Is the STAR!
Butterscotch, Toffee, or Caramel?
What’s the difference between butterscotch, toffee, and caramel? There are small but noticeable differences that can accommodate a wide range of tastes. While these three sweet confectioneries or sauces are made using a delectable combination of sugar and butter, they differ in a way or another:
Caramel basically incorporates granulated sugar, cream, and vanilla flavorings, giving the mix a velvety fine balance.
Toffee is butterscotch that has been cooked for a longer period of time. It is perfect to create a gooey, sweet syrup that goes well with a variety of old-fashioned butterscotch sweets.
Butterscotch’s key ingredient is brown sugar. It contains molasses, and gives butterscotch a decadent taste. Because of this, a butterscotch cake is richer and more flavorful!

Frequently Asked Questions
Use the toothpick test as a guide. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
To prepare an egg-less butterscotch cake, use yogurt. It is an excellent egg alternative in cakes.
If butterscotch chips are unavailable, you can use caramelized cashews instead. To do that, combine ¼ cup of sugar and 1 tablespoon of water in a pot over medium heat, and boil until the sugar acquires a lovely golden brown color. Directly, add ¼ cup of cashews and coat them completely in the sugar with a spatula. Place the nuts on parchment paper or a silicon sheet to cool. After the cashews have cooled, slice them up and place them in the cake mixture.
Yes, you can experiment with different cake mix flavors if you prefer. However, keep in mind that it may alter the overall taste and texture of the Butterscotch Cake.
If you don’t have sour cream on hand, you can try using plain Greek yogurt as a substitute. It will provide a similar level of moisture and richness to the cake.
