I love feeding people and having something to take care of. This weekend My Sterling and I went to pick up his niece and I was super excited about it. She is 21 years old by the way (just in case you thought she was a baby.) Anyway, we spent the weekend watching movies, going thrifting, and eating good food. She loves dessert so I decided that we needed a good ole’ fashioned caramel cake.
The reason I love this caramel cake is that it’s so rich and buttery in flavor. The texture will remind you of a light pound cake. Then, once you top that with the caramel frosting it’s something you will truly sink your teeth into. We had so much cake and we didn’t want to risk eating an entire cake so we went over to some friends’ house and took the cake. Let’s just say it was a cake and almond milk party. There wasn’t any left so it was definitely a hit! You will absolutely love this cake and I can’t wait for you to try it.
1 ½ cup Flour
1 cup Sugar
½ cup Butter (1 stick)
½ cup Buttermilk
1 tsp Vanilla
2 Tablespoons Butter
½ cup Brown Sugar
1 cup Confectioners Sugar
½ tsp Vanilla
5 Tablespoons Milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease and lightly flour one 4″ round cake pan and one 6″ round cake pan.
- Cream butter and sugar with an electric mixer.
- Add eggs, buttermilk, vanilla, flour, and mix until combined.
- Pour batter and fill up both round cake pans halfway.
- Bake on 350 for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
- Once down remove from oven and allow to cool on cooling racks.
- Once fully cooled you can remove them from the round baking pans and prepare your frosting
- In a small saucepan over medium heat melt butter and whisk in brown sugar and milk. Allow it to boil then turn down the heat to low.
- Mix in confectioners sugar and allow it to cool. As it cools it will begin to thicken.
- When it reaches your desired thickness pour the delicious goodness all over your cake. As little or as much as you like.
Grab some plates and a few forks and have a good time. If you make this cake I would love to see it. Send me a photo or use the hashtag #SavorV
