Caramel Spice Cake with Penuche Icing

This Caramel Spice cake is delicious. I found a caramel cake recipe online a while back, and this recipe is my end result of messing around with it a bit- the spice part definitely gives it the punch that it needs! And as Penuche Icing is caramel-flavored, I figured it would be the perfect match for this cake, and it turned out perfect. On to the pictures and recipe!

Here's the cake batter...

And here's the baked cake!

Caramel Spice Cake
-10 tablespoons butter
-1 1/4 cup white sugar
-1/2 teaspoon salt
-1/3 cup caramel syrup
-2 eggs
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-2 cups flour
-1/2 teaspoon baking powder
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-1 cup milk
Mix the butter (melted) with the sugar and salt, then mix in the caramel syrup, eggs, and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients, then the cup of milk.
Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.

And here's the Penuche Icing all mixed up.

Penuche Icing
-1/4 cup butter
-1/2 cup brown sugar
-1/8 teaspoon salt
-1/3 cup light cream or evaporated milk
-3 cups confectioner's sugar
-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Microwave the butter and brown sugar until melted and bubbly. Let cool slightly, then mix in the salt, cream, and vanilla. Beat in the confectioner's sugar until it is the consistency you want. Makes about 1.5 cups.

And the finished cake! Enjoy.

Savor it!
love, rue
