Toffee Bar Cake with Praline Sauce

Do you ever make a new recipe and, it is so good, you just can't believe it?  Well, this is how I feel about the following cake recipe!  SO good!  I joined an amazing organization this fall, The LeBonheur Club.   This organization serves our Memphis children's hospital.  This hospital is especially dear to my heart because our 6-year-old daughter, Brooke, underwent a heart procedure there, when she was 5 years old.  The doctors and the nurses are so amazing!   I purchased the club's cookbook two weeks ago and, have really enjoyed it.




Toffee Bar Cake With Praline Sauce


2 cups flour
1 cup packed dark brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 t. salt
1 package chopped Heath bars (baking section)
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 t. baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1 egg
1 t. vanilla


Praline Sauce


1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
4 tablespoons butter
1 (5 1/2 ounce) can evaporated milk


Beat flour, sugars, butter and salt in a large bowl with a mixer on low speed, until mixture resembles course meal.  Remove 1/2 cup of mixture and combine with Heath bars and pecans in a medium bowl.  Add buttermilk, egg and vanilla. Beat until just combined.  Pour batter into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish.  Sprinkle toffee mixture on top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until golden brown on top and a toothpick comes out clean in the center.  cool completely in dish.  Cut and serve with Praline Sauce.


Praline Sauce: 


Combine sugar, corn syrup and butter in a saucepan.  Bring to a boil.  Remove from heat and cool to lukewarm.  Blend in milk.  Store in jars in refrigerator until ready to use.
