Next adventure into the new book for me was the Karmel cake.  Rose pairs this cake with coffee whipped cream but I decided to frost it with milk chocolate ganache…figuring it would taste like a chocolate covered caramel…and it did.  It was a big hit.  No picture…didn’t do anything fancy, just spread the ganache on the cake.

wow, I just made the Karmel cake and it looks like advertised. Exactly like in the book. Haven’t cut it open yet and am a bit worried about the chunks of caramel that were still left in the batter and that didn’t dissolve, will report back if they are still in.

No fancy frosting like Bill had, though. I don’t even have whipped cream :-(  Oh well, will have to go in like it is now….

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.
