Classic Caramel Cake
As you know by now, baking was one of the centers of my childhood. I feel so fortunate to attempt to re-make recipes my mom or Grandmother made with me when I was younger. Some were never repeated, but some, like Caramel Cake, became a household staple. For as long as I can remember I just loved caramel cake and many times Mom made them as cupcakes. I love the layers of flavor and the yummy caramel icing that goes with it.
No matter how many time I make this recipe, I always seem to need to check in with my mom to make sure I’m doing it just right. Luckily, FaceTime makes that pretty easy to do these days! The caramel icing can be a bit tricky and sometimes the weather can play a difference in making the caramel frosting set up right, but my mom always knows what to do to get it back on track.
I hope you’ll take a stab at making this delicious Southern staple. I’d love to know what recipes were staples in your house growing up. Let me know in the comments below or on social media.
