I’ve been on this dessert kick lately. Oh, who am I kidding? I love making desserts over everything else ALL OF THE TIME. I think they’re just so much fun to not only prepare, but enjoy.?
Today we’re making an Easy Caramel Fudge Cake. For such an easy recipe, this is an absolutely delicious dessert. I always warm each piece a little before serving. Topped with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, this caramel fudge cake is pretty much “to die for.”
Making the Caramel Fudge Cake
You start by preparing a boxed cake mix according to the instructions on the package, but only bake about half of the batter.
Easy, right? The rest is easy, too. In a saucepan over medium-heat, you melt the caramels, butter and sweetened condensed milk until you achieve a smooth, caramel mixture.
Then you pour it evenly over your cake. Oh. My. Goodness.
THEN, you spread the remaining cake batter over the caramel mixture and return the cake to the oven. Here’s where the magic happens. Just look at that gooey caramel layer in between the rich chocolate cake layers?
You really don’t need any frosting on this cake. Just add a scoop of vanilla ice cream while it’s still warm.
And watch the cake frost itself.?
Just look at that ice cream soaking into the cake and spilling over the sides.
Take that fork, drag it through the caramel and the ice cream and take a big bite. Once you make this caramel fudge cake, you will make it time and time again. There are just some things that never get old. Classic recipes like this one are a great example. ?Enjoy.
