With the last week of Claudia’s vacation coming to an end, I decided to make my all-time personal favourite cake. Sure…cheesecake is pretty good, and nothing can truly compare to an amazing piece of red velvet. But THIS cake is simply the best (sorry but I had to quote the Queen, Tina Turner there).

My brother and I were born 2 years and 1 day apart from each other. Growing up, we often shared birthday parties.  We actually still do to this day.  The one thing that Claudia did well was although we never really had individual birthday parties, we always had our own cake. Probably because she knew I’d throw a fit if I had a Superman themed cake and my brother would be the laughing stock of his friends if he had to have a Strawberry Shortcake themed cake. But I digress…

Skor Cake is now my staple birthday cake every year from Claudia. My brother also gets Skor Cake, but his typically comes from Dairy Queen in ice cream form. Again, even in adulthood, we still need to keep our birthday cakes different. I encourage you all try Skor Cake for your birthdays. Friends – you are worth it!

You will need:

1 box Devil’s Food Cake mix (Betty Crocker or Duncan Hines work best)

Ingredients to accompany the cake mix (typically eggs, oil and water or milk)

1 tub Cool Whip

1 can sweetened condensed milk

1 can/jar/tube of caramel or butterscotch sundae syrup (we prefer caramel)

4-5 Skor bars

Combine all ingredients that the box cake mix calls for and follow directions.

Here I combined all the ingredients in a bowl and mixed them for 2 minutes on medium speed.

Cake batter is my vice.

Bake cake as per the box instructions in a 9×13 inch baking pan

I baked this for 30 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

While cake is still extremely warm, combine your whole can of condensed milk and all your caramel syrup

Again, while your cake is still hot, use the end of a wooden spoon and poke holes all over the cake

Pour caramel and milk mixture over the cake and allow to soak in

I could seriously eat this cake just like this!

But we’re not done. Not even close!

Allow the cake to cool completely. As you can see, the caramel mixture slowly soaks into the cake keeping it moist and seriously delicious

When cake is completely cooled, spread Cool Whip over top

Next, top cake with broken up bits of Skor bar.

And you’re done!

Oh wait, you’re not done.

You need to try a piece of the best cake you could make for yourself…

…or a loved one

Gooey, sweet and chocolatey

This should seriously be illegal.

    I too had not made this cake in a while. I loved the photos I had to use a smaller pan and I hoped it would still work. THANKS.

    I wonder if this would work using a different flavor of cake mix…. my hubby loves Skor bars, but doesn’t really like chocolate that much. Anyone ever try?

      I have never tried a different cake mix, but I’m sure you could do a simple vanilla and all the flavours would continue to work well. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

    Made this cake back in August for my grandsons 7th birthday. It was a big hit with him and the whole family. Just came back to check ingredients to make it again for a Grey Cup party next weekend, and had to let you (and everyone) know, that this recipe is a keeper! Yum, can’t wait for a piece of this again.

    If you have more time and more money I guess try real whipped cream. Xtra special and worth every penny.

      You can use your favourite store bought frosting (vanilla) or you can make your own whipping cream by beating whipping cream and vanilla together with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.

      Ideally you should make it the day of, but you can make it a day ahead as long as it sits in the fridge.

    Can I use another chocolate cake mix? Like Milk Chocolate? Chocolate Fudge? Or German Chocolate? I really don’t like the Devils food chocolate that much.

      You can use whatever cake mix you like that is of the chocolate variety.
