Toffee Treasure Cake

You’ll Need:

Cinnamon-Sugar Mixture
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup granulated sugar

Combine the cinnamon and sugar in a small bowl and set aside.

Nut-Candy Mix
4 to 5 Heath bars, smashed into bits
1/4 cup chopped nuts (pecans or walnuts)

Place the candy bars in a large zip-close bag, seal, then use a rolling pin to smash the candy bars into small, bite-size pieces. Add the nuts to the bag, shake to mix, and set aside.

2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup softened unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 (8 ounce) container sour cream
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted (for crumble)

Procedures : Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and lightly flour a 9- to 10-inch Bundt pan.

Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a large bowl. Add the butter and, using an electric mixer or a spoon, mix well to incorporate. Add the sugar, eggs and sour cream; blend well.

In a small skillet, melt the butter for the crumb and set aside.

Spoon half of the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle with half of the cinnamon sugar and half of the candy mixture. Top with the remaining batter, then sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon-sugar and candy mixtures. Top with the melted butter.

Bake the cake on the middle shelf of the oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean.

Let the cake cool completely in the pan, then use a flat knife or flat spatula to gently loosen it from the pan. Remove and place on a serving plate.
