Betty's Tip: When an article about Butter Brickle Cake ran in the Chicago Tribune in March 2001, it must have sparked some memories--the response to the article was tremendous! If you loved Betty Crocker's butter brickle cake mix that was taken off the shelves in 1990, you can recreate the fabulous flavor with just a few easy embellishments to a box of yellow cake mix.
