Happy Wednesday friends 🙂 I’ve got such a delicious share for today. This is actually the same cake I made for our new years celebrations, which is pictured here. I topped it with caramel and whipped cream and this combination was so delicious, my family argued over the last piece
The cake is one of the recipes that made it into my top 10 for 2016 and it’s such a fabulous one as it’s so easy and versatile. I used this recipe for the cake. I actually halved it and made it into one cake 😉
The cake itself works so well with any frosting and topping, maybe that’s why it’s such a popular recipe!
I made a pretty simple caramel sauce to pour on top. It’s just brown sugar, cream and a bit of corn syrup which I subbed with honey. Stir it all together, add a splash of vanilla and pour over the cake before it has a chance to set. Preferably it’s best to make caramels with a candy thermometer but it’s totally do-able without one.
The caramel worked so well with the vanilla-y flavours of the cake. This is such a lovely treat that can be made any time to satisfy your cravings without fuss 😍😍
Absolutely delicious! 😋
