This is what I often take to pot luck (or funeral) doings at church…  today, I took this for the ‘potluck’ tailgate party before the Timber Rattlers baseball game in Appleton.  The party was sponsored by Family Works.  There was a big variety of very tasty food there, and we had a ‘big bunch of fun”……..
You will need:

1 German Chocolate cake mix (See my note about ‘variations’ at the bottom.)
1 can (14 oz.) sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
1 (3.4 oz.) box instant butterscotch pudding
1 and 1/2 cups milk
1/2 pint of whipping cream (OR 8 oz. Cool Whip)
1 or 2 mini Heath Bars, coarsely chopped (optional).  Two crushed mini-Butterfinger bars OR little shaved curls of chocolate work, too.  Use whatever you want.


Preheat panggangan to 350-degrees.  Grease/flour baking pan/dish.

Prepare and bake cake as directed on package for 9x13x2-inch pan.  Cool for 15 minutes.

Poke top of warm cake with the round handle of a wooden spoon.  Make a ‘V’ in the pouring edge of the sweetened condensed milk can and pour the milk into the poked holes and then over the top of the cake; let stand until milk has been absorbed into cake.

Place in refrigerator until completely cooled (I like to let it sit for overnight).  Mix instant pudding with the 1 and 1/2 cups milk until it’s thick and then spread this over the cake, easing the pudding into each poked hole.

Place back in refrigerator for about 30 minutes.  Spread whipped cream OR Cool Whip over top and then sprinkle with the chopped candy kafe pieces.

When I take this cake to pot luck doings, I always ‘tag/name’ it by attaching a tiny piece of paper to a Popsicle stick and sticking that into the cake with the message:  “German Chocolate cake/with butterscotch pudding and Heath Bar pieces”.   That way, it won’t be taken and wasted by someone who finds they don’t care for those flavors–  well, so far, the pan has always been emptied.

This same kind of cake could be put together using the sweetened condensed milk with white cake mix/chocolate pudding; lemon cake with lemon pudding; chocolate cake with vanilla OR chocolate pudding, etc.  Source Recipe:

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
