My Best Cake

Wednesday, August 26, 2009

Hi! Lara's Mom here. I used to make a similar cake many years ago and then lost the recipe. This is easier and different than the one I used to make, but is still very good.





The ingredients:

1 German chocolate cake mix - make and bake
1 can sweetened condensed milk
16-17 oz caramel topping (I made mine from scratch--see recipe below)
1 carton (8-oz.) Cool Whip

CARAMEL TOPPING:
5 Tablespoons Butter
1 Cup brown sugar
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup half and half (I use milk)
1/2 tsp vanilla

For caramel topping: Heat butter and sugar over low heat until smooth. Add half and half and salt. Simmer 4 minutes. Add vanilla. Stir for a minute or so.

After baking German chocolate cake as directed, make holes in baked cake with wooden spoon handle.Pour sweetened condensed milk and caramel topping over warm cake.

Cool for 2 hours in the refrigerator.

Cover with whipped topping. Leftovers (if you have any) need to be kept refrigerated. Enjoy.

I've seen variations of this cake, but I've never tried it! What is my problem! It looks delicious.
