Rich chocolate cake smoothed with dreamy salted caramel swiss meringue buttercream. Drizzle on the easy-to-make salted caramel, and this IS the perfect cake for chocolate and caramel lovers!
Just before 2017 ended, I had 2 layers of chocolate cake sitting in my freezer. Sometimes when I bake extra, I’d love to just freeze them! Just in case I didn’t have time to make breakfast for myself (lol! have cake for breakfast, yes!).
So I thought before the cake “expire”, I should probably try out salted caramel with chocolate cake! And I really loved it!!
I did not really try making salted caramel again after being burnt many years ago. For some reason that time, I decided to taste the boiled sugar and burnt my lips lol!! That was when I was just starting out at baking.
This time round, it was really easy for me to make the caramel! And I also enjoyed eating the extra!
If you have not tried salted caramel with chocolate cake before, you should! These 2 flavours paired up really well!
My elder daughter also loved the Swiss Meringue Buttercream. It has this nice smokey caramel taste, which was not overly sweet. If you prefer a stronger caramel taste, you can add more.
For this salted caramel recipe, it makes much more than what is required. So if you do not want so much of the caramel sauce, you can reduce the ingredients by half. Otherwise, you can be like me, make the full batch and store the rest in mason jars, and make some caramel popcorn or lick it by the spoonfuls! :p
