Caramel Cake

Got a hankering for cake? Or do you know someone with a birthday coming up? “Let them eat cake!” A 1-2-3-4 cake with caramel icing, that is. Just look at this picture! It makes your mouth water, just looking at it. Terrible at baking, you say? Well, this recipe is easy peasy and generally fool proof. All of your friends will be totally impressed with you when they get to sample it later. Here are the ingredients you need to gather as well as a few simple tips to consider before you get started!

Prepare your kitchen by turning your oven up to 350 degrees and gathering the following together – all purpose flour, baking powder, unsalted butter left at room temperature, sugar, eggs, milk, and vanilla. For the beautiful lucscious icing, you’ll need dark brown sugar, more milk and butter and confectioners sugar.

Before we send you off to the complete recipe, please take not – although this is a particularly yummy cake, one must first realize you may not wind up with enough frosting at the end that can cover all 3 decadent layers – at least, this is what a few of the reviewers have told us. One suggestion that possibly could fix this would be to simply double the recipe, then you’ll have ample frosting, with some left over in case you’d like to lick the bowl – or in case you have a little helper who might lick the bowl, too! This is definitely the route we would take.

However, if you have pure efficiency at heart and don’t wish to waste anything, you could try making a batch and a half. To do this, please take note that the measurements would be the following:

3/4 cup butter

1-1/2 cups brown sugar

1/4 + 2 tablespoons milk

3 cups of confectioner's sugar
