Caramel Cake Recipe

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Does anyone have a good caramel cake recipe starting with a box of white cake mix? Usually I would use the Original WASC recipe with a caramel cake mix and caramel extract, but the caramel cake mix is not currently available in my area. I have a request for a full sheet cake so I want something that will not fall apart. Any suggestions on how to make this recipe work? new recipes?

The *Original* WASC cake recipe
Ingredients
1 box cake mix (I prefer Betty Crocker) *see notes at end
1 cup flour*
1 cup granulated sugar
generous dash of salt
1 cup sour cream*
1 cup water *
3 whole eggs
Coupons
1 tablespoon flavoring*

You want to look for a recipe using caramel ice cream topping. There may be a caramel version in the "gourmet cake flavours" thread on CC.

Or else you could do a test using 1-1/2 cups caramel ice cream sauce and 1/2 cup water to replace both the water and sugar in the WASC recipe. A little caramel flavour will help too (see what you can find from LorAnn).

I make caramel cake by starting with my regular white cake recipe and replacing the white sugar with brown sugar and 1/2 the liquid with caramel sauce. This works with scratch or packaged cake mix. It's really (really, really icon_biggrin.gif ) good.

So, in the recipe you posted, I'd recommend replacing the 1 cup of granulated sugar with brown sugar and the 1 cup of water with 1/2 cup caramel sacuse and 1/ cup of water.

I used the brown sugar and caramel sauce and it turned out great! I also added some of the Duncan Hines frosting creations caramel flavor packet. Next time I think I might also add caramel extract. Thanks for the advice!

Ummm...I forgot this at the time. Add some Skor bits instead of the caramel extract. They melt into the cake texture while baking, no ingredient adjustment required.
