Butterscotch cake is a simple sponge cake that’s flavored with butterscotch sauce. The sauce is mixed in with the cake batter, which then goes into the baking tin. A layer of thinly sliced apples is then sprinkled over the batter before it’s baked. When the cake is cooked, the apples are soft and gooey, the cake is moist and tender, and the butterscotch sauce has created a caramel-like crust on top. Easy to make as it is, there are a few things you need to remember when making a butterscotch cake to make sure it turns out perfectly every time.
