Toffee Spice Cake

Recipe for toffee spice cake.

This cake is made with a brown sugar and cinnamon base. It has a caramelized top layer that is achieved by cooking the cake in a skillet with butter, brown sugar, and spices. The topping is made from toffee sauce and chocolate chips.

This Icelandic skyr spice cake is perfectly spicy and delicious, and it’s topped with a highly addictive crumb topping and toffee sauce!

Iceland has recently been discussed by everyone and their cousin. I watch programs about Iceland on TV, photos of pals in beautiful Icelandic valleys on Instagram, and food bloggers gushing over this delicacy called Icelandic skyr.

Skyr? Huh?

Skyr (pronounced skee-er) is an Icelandic dairy product that has a texture comparable to Greek yogurt. The taste is milder, and a single meal contains a lot of protein.

For thousands of years, skyr has been a part of Nordic culture. Skyr was not accessible in the United States until recently. However, Icelandic Provisions, a skyr firm founded in Iceland, is now accessible in most states. And it’s fantastic. 


Every morning, for example, I consume Greek yogurt. I enjoy it, although with its trademark tart taste, it may be a bit of a chore to eat. Skyr, on the other hand, is creamy and acidic at the same time. On your tongue, it’s like a wave of wonderful dairy bliss.

It’s also great for baking, as seen by this Icelandic Skyr Spice Cake. Skyr is somewhat acidic because to the cultures in it, which assists in the rising process of baked items. It also contributes to a more complex, rather than bland, flavor. It also implies that your baked items will have more protein.


The varieties pay respect to traditional Nordic tastes, such as Blueberry with Bilberry (very adorable) and Peach with Cloudberries (CLOUDBERRIES), and the flavor is simply great. Is this anything you’re reading today, Mom? If you like regular yogurt, you must try skyr.

There’s goodness everywhere.


I’m thrilled to be collaborating on this piece with Icelandic Provisions and thefeedfeed. And I’m really pumped about a contest they’re doing, in which one lucky winner and a friend will receive a TRIP TO ICELAND. The complete contest rules may be read here.

I’m already envious. Please return all of the skyr to me.

  • 2 cups flour (all-purpose)
  • 1 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder

For the crumble + cake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Using parchment paper, grease and line a 9′′x9′′ baking dish.
  2. Whisk together the butter, brown sugar, and molasses in a large mixing basin until smooth, approximately 1 minute. One at a time, add the eggs, beating well after each addition. Lastly, add the vanilla extract.
  3. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spices in a separate basin. Fold wet ingredients into dry ingredients with a spatula until well combined. Fold the skyr in half. The batter will be rather thick. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread it out to the sides.
  4. Combine flour, brown sugar, spices, and salt to form the crumb topping. Pour in the melted butter and stir everything together with your hands. Rub the mixture together with your fingers until it has the feel of wet sand and pea-sized particles remain.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes after crumbling the mixture on top of the spice cake batter. Remove from pan and serve with toffee sauce after allowing to cool somewhat.

To make the toffee sauce, combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl.

  1. Combine heavy cream, butter, sugar, and rum in a small saucepan over low heat (optional). Heat for 5 minutes, or until sugar is fully dissolved and the liquid starts to boil.
  2. Remove the pan from the heat and pour the contents into a cup with a pour spout. Pour toffee over the top of the cake when ready to serve. The day of, the cake is best served warm!
