German Chocolate Toffee Cake

This German Chocolate Toffee Cake is so light and moist, it will disappear so fast. Plus, it is so simple to make, you won't believe it! #WomenLivingWell #easydesserts #easyrecipes #GermanChoclateMy mom just served this amazing cake for my grandmother’s 87th birthday and mmmmm…it was so good that I took a photo of it right there and said “Mom, email me your recipe.” The chocolate with condensed milk and butterscotch is sweet and the light and fluffy cool whip – it’s the perfect mix – delicious! So here it is!
German Chocolate/Toffee Cake Ingredients:
German Chocolate Cake Mix (any brand)
1 can Eagle Brand condensed Milk
1 12 oz jar butterscotch ice cream topping
1 container of cool whip
8oz bag of Heath English Toffee Bits (or chop up 6 Heath bars)

Use any German Chocolate cake mix. Bake as directed in 9 x 13-inch pan. Cool.

When the cake is cool, poke holes using a straw, about 1 inch apart all over the cake.

Pour over separately: 1 can Eagle Brand condensed milk, and 1 12 oz. jar butterscotch ice cream topping. Using a rubber spatula, make sure to fill all of the holes. Refrigerate to set.

Spread one container of Cool Whip over top. Sprinkle 1/2 bag (8 oz.) of Heath English Toffee Bits over top and refrigerate until serving.


Walk with the King!


  1. Oh my goodness – I had to laugh because as I began excitedly reading this post, I realized it was titled "Toffee" not "Coffee" cake. I was all excited about having a German Chocolate Coffee cake recipe for breakfast. LOL. This DOES sound scrumptious and maybe I could still have a (small) piece for breakfast with my coffee…

  2. This looks easy and tasty, I think I can do this. I hope you have a chance to stop by mine today, I am doing marshmallows.

  3. Yum! Do put the milk and butterscotch on the cake while it's hot? I"ll have to make this for the youth group kids…they'd love it!

  4. Oh my goodness!! That looks awesome!! Of course, I am pretty sure I just gained ten pounds looking at it but still. 🙂

  5. I scrolled through comments, looking for someone's "correction" on the name of this cake…and Chisty has it right! Except my husband calls it *almost* better than…

    And, after it sets for a day or two, the flavors blend together and it's even tastier!

  6. This cake looks absolutely delicious.

    How would you describe the taste of butterscotch ice cream ? We don't have this type of ice cream in Germany as far as I know.

  7. A-Man – the butterscotch is a an ice cream topping. Like fudge or caramel. It's not actually ice cream. Hope that helps :-)!

  8. Can you suggest a replacement for the toffee/heath bar…my daughter can’t have the toffee due to food allergies but I’d really like to try making this cake.
