Chocolate Caramel Cake

"Chocolate and caramel is my son's favorite of flavor combinations. This cake was a special way to make a birthday cake for him. I served it with vanilla ice cream on the side while the cake was still warm. It is good after it has cooled to also top with a dusting of confectioner's sugar or just plain too but our favorite way is to always have it a bit warm. Found this gem in "A Chocolate Christmas" cookbook."

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Grease and flour a 9x13" baking pan.
  • Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt together using a whisk.
  • In a large mixing bowl, on low speed combine the buttermilk, sugar, shortening, eggs and vanilla and the flour mixture until blended.
  • Beat on high speed, scraping sides of bowl occasionally, for an additional l3 minutes.
  • Pour half of the cake mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, melt the caramels and sweetened condensed milk together.
  • After the first baking time, spread the caramel mixture over the warm cake. Put the remaining batter on top of the caramel and bake an additional 15-20 minutes or until done.
  • Serve warmed is best in my opinion topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
