Patrincia - good timing - just decided to have a piece for breakfast. It definitely is a very yummy cake, with a good caramel taste. Everybody loved it yesterday night. I think I could have taken it out of the oven 5 minutes earlier (left it 30 minutes) as ths outside is a tiny bit dry, but really nothing bad.
I don’t have a sugar thermometer so I eyeballed it until it had a nice brown caramel color and was slightly curdled. I had some pieces of carmel that didn’t dissolve in the milk, nor in the batter. They now are little bits of goodness - though enough to look planned - LOL. Thanks to all of you I used a cake strip for the first time in my life. Just used a multifold piece of wet rag, not sure whether it it made any difference, but it was definitely a perfect looking cake.
A photo won’t help - it just looks exactly like in the book.
