A delicious caramel cake whose bread isn’t too sweet, but the main star of this recipe is the caramel covered and filled with. It is necessary to know that it is not a quick recipe. It is easy, but it will take you at least 3 hours to prepare because our caramel will have to be prepared with much patience to have a spectacular dessert that will surely surprise everyone in the house.


For the cake:

  • 1/3 cup of vegetable oil
  • 2 sticks of unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3 cups of flour for sifted cake
  • 2 1/2 cups of sugar
  • 6 large eggs, plus 2 egg yolks, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla extract

For the caramel icing:

  • 1 1/2 sticks of butter
  • 2 cans of evaporated milk
  • 2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract


For the cake:

  1. We preheat our oven to 180 degrees centigrade.
  2. In a large bowl with the help of our mixer and for about 5-6 minutes we beat the butter, oil and sugar at high speed until it is completely incorporated and a light and fluffy mixture is left.
  3. Go down at medium speed and mix the eggs and egg yolks one by one until they are well incorporated.
  4. Add the vanilla extract and mix.
  5. Sift the cake flour, baking powder and salt into a medium bowl.
  6. With the mixer on slow speed, add the flour mixture and then the sour cream little by little, alternating until you have finished beating them all.
  7. Once we have a homogeneous consistency we will stop beating to avoid over mixing.
  8. Grease with butter or spray and flour three 20-centimeter molds.
  9. Pour the mixture into the three molds evenly.
  10. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until completely cooked. We will know when we put a toothpick in the center of the cake and it comes out clean.
  11. Remove the moulds from the oven and let it cool down for about 10 minutes. We remove the cakes from the molds and wait until it is completely cooled.

For the caramel icing:

  1. Add the butter, evaporated milk, and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until everything has melted.
  2. Leave over medium heat and stir until it has thickened and the caramel has darkened to a beautiful golden color.
  3. Ensure the caramel color is like the one in the picture below before removing it from the heat.
  4. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract.
  5. Let it cool down for about 15-20 minutes before decorating your cake.
