  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup toffee bits

    Bake 18 to 23 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pans to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour.

    In 1-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Stir in brown sugar, corn syrup and milk. Heat to rolling boil over medium-high heat, stirring frequently; remove from heat. Immediately beat in powdered sugar and vanilla with whisk until smooth. Immediately drizzle about 1 tablespoon glaze over each cake; sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon toffee bits. Store loosely covered.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Almond lovers can get a fix by substituting almonds for the pecans and almond extract for the vanilla.
  • tip 2
    To keep the cakes from sticking to the cake pans, be sure to generously grease and flour the pans.
