Caramel Cake

Wishing all our dear readers a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Christmas is a wonderful celebratory time of the year. It's also the time for baking goodies and eating delicious elaborate feasts or just spending some cozy time with the family. Here is a simple cake to brighten your holiday spirits. 

Prep Time: 40 mins
Ingredients
All purpose flour: 1 cup
Baking powder: 1 teaspoon
Butter: 1 stick
Eggs: 2
Sugar: 1 cup (1/2 cup for caramel + 1/2 cup beating)
Vanilla Essence: 1 teaspoon

*Making the caramel is the trickiest part. If you don't make it right it will crystallize very soon and this cake totally depends on the caramel. Of course the experienced cooks out there have no problems with that. 

Heat half cup of sugar with one teaspoon of water and let it melt until completely golden brown and bubbling. Microwave little water and add 2 teaspoons of water. It will bubble up, but stir continuously. Turn off the heat and keep aside.

Beat butter and the 1/2 cup sugar until smooth. Add one egg at a time and beat thoroughly until ivory in color. Add the vanilla essence. Sieve the flour and baking powder together a few times. Add the flour little by little and beat well. Pour in the caramel syrup slowly and beat the batter until all smooth. Sometimes, there is a chance the caramel will still crystallize looking like tit bits of caramel which is completely okay (Notice our picture of the cake batter).

Butter the dish and dust 1 teaspoon of flour so that the sides don't stick. Pour in the batter and bake at 350 F for 30 mins.

Take it out and cut the cake into slices.
