I am going way back on this one. I love to bake along with the Baked Sunday Mornings group when I can, although there have been so many wonderful bakes that I have missed for one reason or the other and this delicious looking cake was one of them. This recipe can be found in the Baked Explorations cookbook and the recipe is not "salted" but since I was going rogue, I thought I may as well go full tilt! I went salted! The rest of the group is making a tapioca pudding that sounds like it is to die for but we are celebrating my sister's birthday today and I wanted to make her a cake, so I scoured through all the recipes that I missed in the past with this group and found this little gem.
I had to make applesauce and caramel sauce before making this cake. The homemade applesauce, which went into the cake, was lovely (I should have made more!) and the caramel sauce went into the frosting, was easy to make and turned out thick and rich. The frosting was interesting, you made it with flour, granulated sugar, milk and butter (ofcourse). I halved the recipe because I did not need a big 3 layer cake and it made a really nice 2 layer cake,
perfect for our gathering.
It certainly looks tasty. I will not know until we cut into it later on today.
I will post a picture of a cut piece later tonight.
