Here is a recipe that you simply MUST try! This recipe is a home made replica/takeoff from addapinch.com of the world famous 7 Layer Caramel Cake from Caroline’s in South Carolina. The cake itself has become something of a Mother’s Day staple over the years. These cakes are shipped nation-wide, and they are NOT cheap– expect to pay upwards of 60-75 bucks for one of these babies! But now you can (try to) make your own, and at a fraction of the cost! There might not be a real substitute for the real thing, but this recipe might be worth a shot.
Here is what you’ll need to make Caroline’s 7-Layer Caramel Cake:
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
2 cups sugar
3 cups flour, self-rising
1 cup buttermilk
2 teaspoons vanilla
Southern Caramel Icing Recipe, double the recipe
Those ingredients are just for the cake itself. The real magic of this recipe comes from the icing. The recipe for the icing, as well as the full instructions for the construction of this fantastic Mother’s Day treat, head over to addapinch.com. Enjoy!
