I will not tell you how much of this cake I ate in less than 24 hours. I will only say that it was good. It was different than cakes that I am used to but not in a bad way. It was also very moist and the topping was like a yummy mix between caramel and toffee.
And no, I'm not referring to the fact that I ate too much of this cake with the title of this post, that really is the name. But maybe the fact that it is addicting is how it got its name? The recipe is slightly adapted from Dining on a Dime, a basic frugal cookbook that I love.

1/4 cup butter, cut into pieces
