Butterfinger Pound Cake Recipe
This recipe was inspired on our trip to Chattanooga, TN earlier this year. We did a cooking demonstration at the home show and went out to dinner afterwards. There was a Butterfinger Pound Cake on the menu for dessert. I was SO excited. I absolutely love Butterfingers. We finished dinner and ordered the pound cake. It wasn’t good. I was so disappointed. I was expecting something amazing, and it was mediocre at best. I knew I had to recreate the Butterfinger Pound Cake I was dreaming of at home.
This recipe for Butterfinger Pound Cake was everything I was hoping for. Seriously delicious! The cake is full of crushed Butterfingers, and I even added a little bit more crushed Butterfingers on top of the homemade buttercream. I am of the opinion that you can never have too many Butterfingers! This cake was one of my all-time favorites. It was super delicious! It would be great for a potluck, if you can bring yourself to share!

To make the frosting:
