How To Make classic vanilla bundt cake with a salted caramel d

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and grease bundt pan. In a large bowl, whisk together both flours. Set aside. In a separate medium bowl, whisk sugar, eggs, oil, vanilla and sour milk. In four separate additions add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until a smooth, slightly thick batter forms.

Once the sauce has cooled, drizzle liberally over the bundt and sprinkle coarse sea salt over the caramel.
