Caramel Cake with Chocolate filling/buttercream?

Never made this combo before but would love a tried & true, scratch, caramel cake (that I can make into books!)... TIA!

One of my favorite combos! I just used it for samples at a bridal show and it was a huge hit. My most popular. If you have a favorite white cake, just replace 1/2 of the white sugar with brown sugar and 1/2 of the liquid with caramel sauce (I make my own but I'm sure the jars would work, too). The white cake recipe I use is in an old cookbook so I don't have a copy and paste version, sorry. The chocolate buttercream I use is a variation of Martha Stewart's fudge frosting.

you dont find that it the cake becomes too sweet or sticky from subbing in caramel sauce?

I have used caramel sauce in caramel cake. Caramel cake is actually one if my favorite flavors. Not the icing though. Too much. But, I have overdone it & ended up with a dense (in a bad way) rubbery sticky mess. Trial & error. Start with a buttery cake flavor to build on. I like Elcee's brown sugar swap, too.

Not if you just replace 1/2 the liquid. My white cake recipe calls for 1 cup of milk so I use 1/2 cup of caramel sauce and 1/2 cup of milk instead. Although, I should say that my own caramel sauce is not as thick and gooey as the kind in a jar so maybe that would need to be diluted? That's just a guess, I don't know for sure.
