Cooking Time35 min

Cooking Vessel Size9 x 13-inch baking pan



  • 1 package devils food cake mix
  • 1 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 8 ounces prepared butterscotch ice cream topping
  • 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk

  • 1 (8-ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened

Holy Cow Cake


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.

  2. In an electric mixer, place cake mix and, with mixer running on low, add water, oil, and eggs. Scrape down sides of the bowl and mix on medium for 2 minutes until all dry ingredients are well combined.

  3. Smooth batter into prepared bake pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Remove cake to a cooling rack and immediately poke holes from top to bottom using a wooden spoon handle or chopstick.

  4. Combine the butterscotch topping with the condensed milk in a bowl and pour over the cake slowly so that it seeps into the holes and permeates the cake.

  5. Crush the candy into bits and sprinkle the top of the cake with half of the bits.

  6. With an electric mixer on low, mix whipped topping with cream cheese until smooth. Spread on top of the cake and garnish with the remaining crushed candy bits. Cover top lightly with a sheet of waxed paper and chill for 1 hour or overnight before serving.

I continue to find poke cake recipes and they just keep getting better. I will be the first one to admit that I love cake and on top of that I love candy. Here I can have them both. I want to make this recipe right now!

These is a very interesting title for a cake but once I read the ingredients list, I got it. Holy Cow this shoulds delicious. It begins with a box cake mix so that makes it a lot less labor intensive and the steps are really easy. In no time, you can be standing in the middle of the kitchen saying to yourself, Holy Cow, this is good.

This looks so good. I'm not personally a huge fan of Butterfingers, but I am definitely going to replace them with Reese's

I'm always amazed at the variety of poke cakes I encounter while browsing through recipes. While Butterfingers isn't my top choice for a peanut butter/chocolate bar, the use of these with the Devil's Food cake is really appealing to me. I love the addition of the butterscotch topping and I know this would be a hit at any gathering.

When I look at this recipe I know it will be a winner. Look at those ingredients! I've made one similar that has broken Heath bar candy bars on top. I feel like I will need some kind of event to make this for, so I won't eat too much of it myself.
