# Bundtamonth : Salted Caramel Bundt Cake


This Caramel Bundt Cake of mine does not have a caramel topping or a glaze and I just tossed in some nibbed almonds to help give this cake a little facelift.  Now, where's the caramel you may wonder for Caramel Bundt Cake is the theme for July's Bundtamonth.  Ah... the caramel is inside the cake!
I did burn the caramel syrup a little, must admit, and it tasted a wee bit bitter on its own.  Fortunately, this was not evident in the baked cake.  In fact, the dark amber syrup helped in giving the cake a nice golden colour.


















Recipe for # Bundtamonth :   Salted Caramel Bundt Cake
(adapted from ' here'  with modification)

    Ingredients - for the Cake

    • 240 gm plain flour
    • 1/2  tsp baking powder
    • 144 gm salted butter  (Add a pinch of salt if unsalted butter is used)
    • 140 gm sugar (original 250 gm)
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2  tsp vanilla
    • 1/3 cup salted caramel syrup
    • 1 cup milk
    • Nibbed almonds (optional)
    Salted caramel
    • 200 gm granulated sugar
    • 3/4 cup water, divided
    • 1  tsp light corn syrup  (I used golden syrup)
    • 1/8  tsp seasalt
    Method for Salted Caramel
    1. In a deep, thick saucepan, add 1/4 cup water, sugar and golden syrup, mix well.  Bring to the boil on medium heat.  Cover with lid for 2 to 3 mins.  Remove lid and cook till sugar turns light amber, swirling occasionally.
    2. Remove pan from heat, add the remaining 1/2 cup water.  (Do be careful as it'll bubble quite vigorously).
    3. Return to medium heat, whisk till syrup is smooth, add in the seasalt.  Set aside to cool.
    Method for Cake
    1. Lightly grease and flour a 6 cup Bundt pan (I used an 8 cup), toss in the nibbed almonds at the base.
    2. Sift the flour with baking powder, set aside.
    3. Cream butter and sugar till light, creamy and fluffy.  Add in vanilla.
    4. On low speed, mix the caramel in 2 batches (batter will curdle).
    5. Fold in sifted flour alternatively with the milk.
    6. Pour batter into the prepared pan.  Level the surface.
    7. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg C or 45 to 50 mins.  Test with a skewer till it comes out clean.
    8. Let cake rest in pan for about 20 mins. before unmoulding onto a wire rack to cool completely.
