Daring Baker's Caramel Cake
Daring Bakers recipe this month is Caramel Cake from Shuna Fish Lydon's blog Eggbeater.
Our hosts for the month - Dolores the host (http://culinarycuriosity.blogspot.com/) with co-hosts Alex (Brownie of the Blondie and Brownie duo: http://blondieandbrownie.blogspot.com/), Jenny of Foray into Food (http://forayintofood.blogspot.com/). Natalie of Gluten-a-Go-Go (http://glutenagogo.blogspot.com/) will assist those who are alternative bakers.
Loved Loved Loved this cake! It is the perfect cake! Just the right amount of caramel in the cake and the icing, which is a Caramelized Butter Icing. Just thinking about it makes me drool!
The caramel syrup gave me a problem on the first batch, so that got dumped because I cooked it a tad too long and it burnt.
Hey! It said dark amber!!! Mine was a lil' too dark. Oh well, it was only sugar and water. Second try was fine!
Our extra challenge was to make Caramels with golden syrup. I used another recipe I have and will post that one another time. I couldn't help but drizzle caramel all over the cake!
All in all I will make this very dense cake again!
