When I taste tested this recipe on my family they asked for seconds and my husband wanted the buttercream bowl to lick (no joke).
Servings 8 portions
Cook Time 45 mins
Total Time 45 mins

Ingredients

For the cake

  • 220 gr plain flour sieved
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 230 gr unsalted butter softened
  • 200 gr caster sugar
  • 4 large room temperature eggs
  • ½ cup sour cream (120g)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp salt

For the caramel sauce to make the buttercream

  • 200 gr white sugar
  • 60 gr unsalted butter
  • 120 ml heavy cream

For the caramel buttercream

  • 150 gr softened butter
  • 150 gr powdered sugar
  • 150 gr caramel sauce (you can use store bought dulce de leche which also works well)

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350f and spray mini bundt pans with non stick cake release spray.
  • Whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder and set aside.
  • In a stand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy then add the eggs one at a time.

  • Add in the sour cream and vanilla extract and continue beating until combined. Don’t worry if the mixture looks split at this stage as once you add the flour, it will come back together and create a smooth batter.

  • Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl then slowly add in the flour continuing to mix on low speed until just combined. Do not over mix.
  • Tip batter into a piping bag, no nozzle required.
  • Pipe into the cake pans, then place onto a baking tray and into the oven to bake for around 25-30 minutes until the top is springy to tough and a toothpick inserted into the centre of each cake comes out clean.

  • Leave in the tins to cool for five minutes before tipping onto a wire rack to cool completely.

  • Whilst the cakes are cooking, make the caramel for the buttercream. In a wide bottomed pan, place the sugar and heat over a medium heat. Wait until you can see the sugar melting then stir using a spatula until the sugar liquid has turned a light golden colour.

  • At this stage add in the butter carefully (it will bubble vigorously) and stir until it has melted and is fully mixed into the caramel.
  • Remove from the heat and pour in the double cream continuing to stir – again it will bubble so take care when doing this.

To make the buttercream

  • Using an electric whisk, beat the sugar until light and fluffy then gradually add in the powdered sugar.
