Simple Southern Caramel Layer Cake

Ingredients for the Cake

1 Box of your favorite Yellow Cake Mix

Method for Cake

• Prepare your favorite yellow cake from scratch or from a box. Two 8-9 inch round cakes are most suitable. This can be done a day ahead of time to allow cakes ample time to cool.
• Once cakes have set and cooled, use a sharp slicing knife to cut each cake in half in order to create 4 layers.

Method for Icing

• Blend butter, brown sugar and milk in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Stirring occassionally to avoid burning, bring the mix to a rolling boil. Make sure all the sugar granules have dissolved.
• Remove from heat and place in a mixing bowl. Allow the mix to cool for a few minutes, but do not allow hardening.
• Beat in the 4X powdered sugar until the icing is proper consistancy to spread. If the icing gets too hard, canned milk may be added to thin.
• Assemble the cake by pouring a layer of caramel icing between each thin layer of cake, and then icing the entire cake.
• Place in refrigerator to set.

We think that the caramel cake is best served with Hilton Head Ice Cream Company Caramel flavored ice cream, but a nice quality vanilla ice cream works just as well.
