This Salted Caramel Bundt Cake is simple to make, and has a wonderful moist crumb, with a caramelized and flavorful crust. Finished with caramel and salt, this cake is perfect for brunch or afternoon tea.
First of all, I was not a fan of caramel at all. In fact, I avoided it at all costs only because when I was in high school, the caramel always stuck to my braces and I had a hard time cleaning it out.
However, just this past year I’ve grown to love eating caramel, especially any recipes that have the phrase “salted caramel”. I really hope you enjoy this recipe and let me know what is your favorite salted caramel recipe!
Tips on How to Make Salted Caramel Bundt Cake
- Always sift dry ingredients like flour, baking powder, baking soda, and even sugar. It will help you achieve a smoother batter in a shorter period of time.
- For your cake to cool down faster take it out from the pan and let it sit on a cooling wire rack.
- If you want mini bundt cakes, you can use the same recipe but just use smaller bundt cake pans.
- Always have a cooking spray handy in your kitchen. It will make your baking and cooking sessions so much easier.
- Feel free to omit the caramel sauce and use icing sugar instead or go without the sauce completely. It will still taste just as good.
