Chocolate cake with salted caramel

Time for another sweet recipe! I love chocolate and I love salted caramel, now this lovely recipe combines both in an amazing cake, admittedly not healthy, but very, very good!
You could, of course, make just the chocolate cake, but why would you ever miss out on a salted caramel? 😉

Ingredients:

Caramel:

  • 1 can of condensed milk
  • 75 g (2.6 ounces) of muscovado sugar
  • 75 g (2.6 ounces) of butter
  • 2 teaspoons of salt

Cake:

  • 6 eggs
  • 550 g (19.5 ounces) of sugar
  • 300 g (10.5 ounces) of wheat flour
  • 75 g (2.6 ounces) of cocoa powder

Directions:

Caramel:

  • Put all the ingredients for the caramel in a saucepan 
  • Bring to a boil over medium heat 
    • Be careful that it doesn’t burn, just stir every minute or so
  • Simmer for 10 minutes while you constantly stir
    • Taste the caramel and decide for yourself if you need more salt 🙂
  • Remove from heat and set aside

Cake:

  • Mix the eggs and sugar together in a bowl, till it becomes airy
  • Mix the flour and the cocoa powder in a bowl
  • Mix the content of the 2 bowls
  • Put half the cake mix into a form lined with baking paper
  • Pour the caramel over the cake mix in the pan
  • Pour the rest of the cake mix over the caramel
  • Bake for 30-40 minute at 200ºC (390ºF)

Now in my opnion, you can never make too much caramel, but if you do have some leftovers, save it! You can eat it on top of ice cream or use it later as icing. 

I hope you like this recipe, and I’d love to hear from you 😀
Lots of l
