Butterbeer Cake

Butterbeer Cake using a box cake mix

Anyone familiar with Harry Potter will recognize this favorite beverage called “Butterbeer”, which I’ve used to flavor this cake. My grand-kids love it!

Baking Pan: Copper Chef Brownie Pan w lift tray & 18 section Divider


I prefer to use quality ingredients too


  • 1 Box Yellow or Vanilla Cake Mix
  • 1 Box Butterscotch Instant Pudding
  • 2 Heath bars (regular size) or 16 mini bars broken up
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup butter (melted) or 1/2 Cup of olive oil
  • 1 Cup crème soda
  • 1/4 Cup brown sugar (packed)


The Copper Chef Baking Pan Divider is SO useful

Butterscotch Frosting / Drizzle:

  • 1 – 16oz. can of Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 2 Tablespoons Butterscotch sundae sauce
  • 1/2 Teaspoon butter extract
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Additional butterscotch or caramel sauce for drizzling

Baking Instructions:


Preheat oven to 350°

In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, oil, crème soda, brown sugar and dry instant pudding mix.

Beat with electric mixer for 2 minutes or until combined.

Pour 1/2 batter into cake pan.

Sprinkle 1/2 the heath pieces into batter.

Pour rest of batter into pan and sprinkle remaining heath pieces on top.

Bake for 28 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
Cool completely.

Remove cake from pan using the lift out tray. Using a spatula, slide it between the cake and lift out tray. Slowly separate cake from tray. This makes it easier to remove cake pieces. Place tray in pan.

I always use the Copper Chef Baking Pan w/Divider


  • 1-16oz can of cream cheese frosting or butter cream frosting.
  • 2 Tablespoons butterscotch sauce
  • 1/2 Teaspoon butter extract
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

Set aside some additional butterscotch or caramel sauce for drizzling

It's best to use vanilla in the frosting

Blend all the above ingredients together in a mixing bowl.

Frost cake.

Cool cake in refrigerator for 30 min. (Easier to slice thru the  frosting)

After cake has cooled, using the section divider, slice the cake.

Use a fork to drizzle butterscotch sauce on top of frosting.

Now you have the perfect serving size pieces of Butterbeer cake.

Enjoy your Butterbeer Cake!
