"This has become my go to cake for all occasion. My family loves it. I have started to make changes in the recipe for my own benefit. to decrease the sugar amount (for health reason) I use a boxed sugar free cake mix. I also make my own butterscotch pudding (creamy butterscotch pudding from taste of home). the microwave oven makes it a snap. thanks for a great cake."

"It was good. It reminded me of a butterscotch blondie recipe I use, but since it had milk instead of Eagle brand sweetened condensed milk it was not nearly as rich. If I make it again I may fold in the butterscotch chips (I omitted the nuts) & try an 8X8 or 9X9 pan."

"When I first made this cake I was a little skeptical because it had so few ingredients and since there's no frosting it didn't look very pretty. Boy, was I wrong! This is a wonderful cake and once I start eating it, I always want more. It is my husband's most requested dessert!"
