Time 1h

Yield Serves 12-14

Number Of Ingredients 11

225g softened salted butter, plus extra for the tins
125g golden caster sugar
100g light brown soft sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 large eggs
225g self raising flour
2 tbsp milk
toffee, chocolate or caramel pieces, to decorate
200g softened salted butter
400g icing sugar (golden icing sugar if you can find it - it adds a golden colour and caramel flavour)
70g caramel sauce, dulce de leche or caramel spread, plus 3 tbsp to serve


  • Heat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Butter two 20cm springform tins and line the bases with baking parchment.
  • Beat the butter and both sugars in a bowl with an electric whisk for a few mins until lighter in colour and fluffy. Add the vanilla and the eggs, one at a time, adding a spoonful of flour and beating in between each egg. Add the remaining flour and milk. Divide between the cake tins and bake for 25-30 mins until they're golden, spring back when pressed, and a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the middle. Cool in the tins for a few mins, then tip out and leave to cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Meanwhile, for the icing, put the butter and icing sugar in a bowl and whisk for a few mins until light and airy. Whisk in the caramel briefly, adding 1 tbsp of boiling water to loosen, if needed. Set aside until the sponges are completely cool before assembling, or the icing will melt.
  • Use half the icing to sandwich the cakes together, then spread the remainder over the top, smoothing it out with a knife or the back of a spoon. Leave in a cool place until ready to serve. Drizzle with the 3 tbsp extra sauce (warm briefly in the microwave if it's a little stiff), allowing some to drip down the sides if you like, and scatter over the toffee, chocolate or caramel pieces to serve. Edible glitter, birthday candles or sparklers, optional.

Yield Serves 8

Number Of Ingredients 10

Nonstick cooking spray with flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1/4 cup Caramel Syrup, plus more for serving
2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
2 large eggs
Caramel Frosting


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray two 8-inch round cake pans with cooking spray, line each with a parchment paper round, and spray again. Set pans aside.
  • Beat butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Gradually add 1 cup sugar and continue to beat until mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in syrup.
  • In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix flour mixture into butter mixture, alternating with milk, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
  • Beat eggs until foamy in another bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Add remaining 1/4 cup sugar and continue beating until thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir into cake batter until well combined.
  • Divide cake batter evenly between prepared pans. Bake until cakes spring back when gently touched in the center, about 25 minutes. If cakes do not spring back, return to oven and continue cooking about 10 minutes more.
  • Cool cake in pans for 10 minutes. Invert cakes onto a wire rack and remove parchment paper round. Let cakes cool to room temperature before frosting.
  • Place four strips of parchment paper around perimeter of a serving plate or lazy susan. Place the first layer on the cake plate. Spread the top of the first layer with frosting. Top with the remaining layer, bottom-side up. Spread entire cake with frosting; remove parchment paper strips. Serve cake drizzled with any remaining caramel syrup.

Time 2h22m

Yield 12

Number Of Ingredients 14

3 cups white sugar
1 ½ cups butter
5 eggs
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ¼ cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (16 ounce) package brown sugar
1 cup butter
¼ teaspoon salt
⅔ cup evaporated milk
1 (16 ounce) package confectioners' sugar, sifted
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour three 9-inch cake pans.
  • Cream white sugar, 1 1/2 cups butter, and eggs together in a bowl. Beat well.

3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs, at room temperature 30 minutes

  • first so it has time to cool. Make sure you have boiling water at the ready. For the burnt sugar syrup, place sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Best to use a 3 quart heavy-bottomed quality saucepan. Stirring constantly with a wooden spoon, cook until the sugar has completely melted and is amber brown, about 8-10 minutes. If the sugar is clumpy, break up the lumps with your wooden spoon. A candy thermometer is not necessary, but if you’re using one, the sugar temperature should reach about 300°F (149°C) when it’s ready. Turn the heat to low and very carefully and slowly drizzle in the boiling water, a little at a time. Stir after each addition and stand back, as the mixture will rapidly sizzle and bubble. After all of the boiling water is stirred in, stir and cook the sugar syrup for 3 more minutes on low. Turn off the heat and let it cool completely, overnight preferred. It’s imperative that the sugar syrup is completely cool. You will have about 1 cup of syrup.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Grease two 9-inch cake pans, line with parchment paper, then grease the parchment paper. Parchment paper helps the cakes seamlessly release from the pans.

  • Heat the oven and prepare the cake pans: Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat to 350°F. Coat 2 (9-inch) round cake pans with butter or cooking spray. Sprinkle a little flour into each pan, tilt and shake to distribute evenly, then tap out the excess over the sink. You can also line the bottom of each pan with parchment paper for extra insurance, if you'd like.
  • Cream the butter and sugars: Place the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. (Alternatively, use an electric hand mixer and large bowl.) Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add the eggs: Add the eggs and beat until fully incorporated and the mixture looks creamy and very pale yellow.
  • Add the dry ingredients, followed by the milk and vanilla: Beat in the flour, baking powder, and salt on low speed. Add the milk and vanilla and beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Increase the speed to high and beat for 3 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.
