    Not sure if I did something wrong in the mixing, but the large volume of milk made my mixture so sloppy that it took an hour to cook! 250 ml of milk seems an awful lot. As a result, the mars bar bits ended up very brittle. Mars bar icing was a nice addition for the topping.  -  24 Jul 2016


    This was a delicious and moist cake!! I put freshly whipped cream and caramel sauce in between the cakes and topped it off with more cream and caramel sauce after putting the cakes together. Everyone loved it!!  -  20 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Made this as my first scratch cake and took to work for a co-worker's birthday. Everyone wanted the recipe. Easy and out of this world.  -  15 Aug 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
