This Caramel cake recipe has been a family favorite for many years.
- ½ Cup butter (NOT Margarine)
- 1 Box Butter recipe cake mix
- 1 tsp. instant cappuccino (optional)
- 1⅓ Cups water
- 2 tsp. vanilla (I use Watkins Clear Vanilla)
- 3 large eggs
- Preheat your oven to 350.
- Prepare you cake pans with grease and flour. I use three 8” round pans for this cake.
- In 1qt. saucepan, melt butter over medium heat, stirring frequently, just until golden brown. You will almost burn the butter but not quite. It should have nice brown specs in it.
- Remove from heat and cool for about 15 minutes.
- In mixing bowl, beat together the cake mix, browned butter, water, vanilla and eggs on low just until blended. Then on medium for about 2 minutes. (You will see the brown flecks from the butter).
- Pour cake batter into prepared pans.
- Bake about 20-25 minutes depending on your oven, until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
- Cool completely before frosting
