Preparing the Butterscotch Cake Batter
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (176°C). Grease three 8-inch cake pans and line the bottoms with parchment paper circles.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, butterscotch instant pudding mix, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  •  Beat the unsalted butter, packed light brown sugar, and vegetable oil in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
  • Then add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  • Gradually add the dry ingredients to the batter, alternating with the milk. Begin and end with the dry ingredients. Mix until well combined, but avoid overmixing.
Baking the Butterscotch Cake Layers
  • Divide the cake batter equally among the prepared pans. Smooth the tops with a spatula.
  • Bake for approximately 22-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cakes comes out with a few crumbs.
  • Remove the cakes from the oven and let them cool in the pans for a few minutes. Then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.
Making the Butterscotch Frosting
  • Using a beater beat the unsalted butter  until smooth.
  • Slowly pour in the melted butterscotch chips, mixing until well combined.
  • Gradually add half of the powdered sugar and half of the milk or cream. Mix until smooth.
  • Add the remaining powdered sugar and salt, mixing until the frosting is creamy and well incorporated. Adjust the consistency with additional milk or cream, if needed.
