Buttermilk Cake With Caramel Frosting

Cassie *


I have been wanting to make this cake for weeks, finally got it done today. It smelled fantastic baking.

A simple cake with most ingredients everyone has in their pantry.

The frosting is terrific..the cake is dense and moist with a nice flavor, would be great served with ice cream or fruit on the side.

This cake would also be great with a Streusel in the center. Next time I make it I am going to try that.

3Combine the flour, baking powder and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating well after each addition (batter will be thick).
4Pour into a greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. ( I used Crisco shortening and flour ) slid right out of pan)

Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
