Recipe: Disney's Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake (Copy Cat)

If you know me, you know all about my Disney trips and my love for the Disney Dining Plan!
You’ll also know that I have friends who love the DDP as equally as I do! :0)  During our Marathon trip, we made sure we had a few similar reservations so we could visit and most importantly, EAT!
Heather introduced me to the Ooey Gooey Toffee Cake at Liberty Tree Tavern and let me tell you….THIS stuff is my 2nd favorite dessert at Disney (cause nothing beats Ohana’s Bread Pudding)!
Notice how everyone at the table ordered the same?!  Hah!
SO, this past week, I was browsing the internet for yummy Disney dessert recipes and I came across this one!  Naturally, I just HAD to make it.  I’m glad a co-worker had a birthday this week so I had an excuse not to keep it all to myself! :0)
Here’s the recipe:
Cake Bottom:
Ingredients: 1 box yellow cake mix
1 each, egg
1/4 cup butter (1 stick)

Method of Preparation: Mix ingredients and put in a greased baking pan 13" x 9".
Cake Filling:
8 ounces cream cheese
3 each, eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup Heath bar pieces
1 pound powdered sugar
Method of Preparation:
1. Put cream cheese in mixer.
2. Slowly add eggs and vanilla.
3. Add butter and mix well.
4. Put in powdered sugar, then add chocolate chips and toffee pieces.
5. Just mix; do not over mix.
6. Put on top of Cake Bottom in pan.
7. Bake at 325 for 35 minutes, then check. (I actually had to bake it for longer – it was closer to 55 minutes – I baked it until it turned slightly brown in the middle).
I made two little extra dishes for Jason and I to try before I brought it to work – I wanted to make sure it tasted ok!  :0)
The finished product!
Add it with a little Bluebell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream and Caramel Syrup….PURE HEAVEN!!! Yum yum! :0)
On the running note, I definitely ran on Monday and Tuesday, I also did the Jillian workout on Monday and Wednesday, and I’m running again this afternoon with my friends.  It’s COOL outside today!  Hope it stays that way for this afternoon! :0)
Have a fabulous day!


  1. Just wondering: do you HATE the new Bluebell song? It makes me sad that it's different from the one I sang as a little girl :(

  2. YAY!! Thank you for posting this. It looks pretty easy to make and looks so yummy! I might have to make this, this weekend for Brian and I to try! I made a key lime pie last weekend for him.

  3. Oh my - YUMMMMMM! Must make it soon. Thanks for sharing. :)

  4. OMG--that looks so delicious! I am a big fan of the DDP too. It makes things so easy and you get so much food!

  5. The Toffee Cake looks scrumptious! Thanks for posting the recipe!!

  6. Umm yum! Toffee is probably my favorite candy!

  7. WOW that looks delicious. I think Im going to search some favorite Disney desserts and make them once my house is back to normal..

  8. YUM that looks fab!!

    I love the Disney Dining Plan too, such a good deal! We actually ate at Liberty Tree Tavern the night before the half marathon last year (2010), but it was a family style character dinner because another resteraunt was closed. My favorites are Tonys @ Magic Kingdom, & Hibachi @ Epcot.
