Chocolate Caramel Cake

I don’t know about you but for me, chocolate cake is the ultimate cake.  It is the perfect choice whether you are celebrating a birthday, or a special event or just want to indulge in a perfectly delicious slice of heaven.

There is something about the smell of chocolate that can instantly lift my mood.  If I’m having a bad day or need a pick-me-up a slice of chocolate cake will surely brighten up my day.  I can definitely not turn down a slice of good chocolate cake.

Chocolate cake is also a certain crowd-pleaser and it is one of the most popular flavours when choosing a celebration cake.

There are hundreds of chocolate cake recipes out there but I have found that adding caramel to the cake mix really adds an extra dimension to my cakes.  This recipe makes for a moist, gooey cake and it is extremely easy to make.  It’s so good, I’m just going to go straight to the point and let you have the recipe!

Ingredients

  • 175g Self-raising flour
  • 2 ½ tbsp Cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of soda
  • 150g Caster sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 150ml Corn Oil (but sunflower or vegetable oil will also work)
  • 150ml Milk
  • 2tsp Vanilla extract
  • 125g Galaxy chocolate
  • 397g can of Carnation caramel
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar
All set to make some
delicious cake!

Equipment

  • 2 x 18cm sandwich cake tins
  • Parchment paper
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C, (160°C for fan ovens).
  • Sieve the flour, cocoa and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl and stir in the sugar. 
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the oil, milk, eggs, half the vanilla and a tablespoonful of caramel until smooth. Then mix into the flour mixture 
  • Divide the cake mix between the two tins and bake for about 20-25 minutes.
  • Cool the cakes in their tins and then turn out onto a cake rack.
  • Melt the chocolate over a pan of boiling water (bain marie) or carefully in the microwave.  Be careful if you are melting the chocolate in the microwave as it can easily burn.
  • Add the rest of the caramel and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  • Put one half of the cake onto a plate and spread some of the icing on top before adding the other half of the cake on top.
  • Add the rest of the icing.  I like to ice the entire cake but it’s up to you whether you just ice the top.
  • Once the chocolate icing has set you can decorate to your liking.
In just a few simple steps you will have
yourself a scrummy chocolate cake
