Original recipe yields 3 layer 8 inch cake

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 8 inch round pans. Sift flour, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt together and set aside.
  2. Cream 1/2 cup butter and 1 1/4 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Add flour mixture alternately with milk. Add 1 teaspoon vanilla and beat until smooth.
  3. Divide batter into three 8 inch pans. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean.
  4. Caramel Nut Frosting: In a heavy saucepan, combine 3 cups sugar, evaporated milk and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil and stir until sugar is dissolved. Lower heat and cook until soft ball stage. Stir with spatula to keep from sticking. Remove from heat and cool 5 minutes. Add 1/2 cup butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla and nuts. Beat until spreading consistency.

For the cake, Try this trick my grandma used to do for a tender cake (I always use it) substitute 2 cups allpurpose flour and 1/2 cup cornstarch for all the flour. I used 4 more tablespoons of butter and thats it. I live in the Carribean so things like cake flour are hard to find for household use. This yields a softer and more tender crumb. If you want an orange or lemon flavored cake, substitute the water for orange juice or lemonade and add grated rind to the butter sugar mixture.

I was looking for a caramel cake recipe and had not tried one before. This cake turned out just as I was hoping. The cake was not too sweet to compliment the extremely rich, thick caramel frosting. Delicious!

"soft balls" takes between 90 and 120 minutes to form. Be sure to plan for this time frame when cooking the cake.
