Brown Sugar Snickers Cake with Caramel Icing

It was Bob’s birthday on Friday and he loves Snickers Bars so I decided to make him a Snickers birthday cake.  It was delicious!

cake

2 cups brown sugar

1 cup sugar

3 sticks butter, softened

5 eggs

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 cup milk

3 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 (8 oz) bag Snickers Unwrapped Bites

icing

1 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons flour

3 tablespoons butter

1/4 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

chopped up Snickers regular size or fun size bars

1  For the cake, preheat oven to 325.  Liberally grease bundt pan with flour cooking spray.

2  Cream together brown sugar, white sugar and butter until fluffy about 3 minutes.  Add in eggs, 1 at a time, beating just until incorporated, followed by vanilla.

3  Alternate adding flour and milk gradually to batter, ending with milk then add in baking powder.  Stir in bag of Snickers bites by hand.

4  Bake for 60 – 70 minutes until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.  Allow to cool in pan 15 – 20 minutes before inverting onto serving platter.  Cool completely before icing.

5  For the icing, in a shallow saucepan, thoroughly whisk together brown sugar and flour.  Stir in butter and milk and cook over medium high heat until mixture comes to a rolling boil.  Boil 1 1/2 minutes.

6  Remove from heat and allow to cool 5 minutes.  Beat with a wooden spoon until mixture begins to thicken.  Mix in vanilla and continue beating for no more than 1 – 2 minutes.

7  Drizzle over cooled cake immediately then quickly sprinkle chopped up Snickers bars over the frosting.
