Introduction: How to Make a White Chocolate Caramel Bundt Cake
Are you tired of making the same old desserts? Do you want to make something new that people will be talking about for years? You have come to the right spot. I am going to take you step by step through the process of making your next amazing dessert. I am not in anyway a professional baker, but I do like to bake and come up with new desserts for my family to enjoy!
This is actually the first Bundt cake I have ever made in my life. I was very nervous and wondered the whole time - Is this going to turn out right? Are you ready to try this taste bud tingling dessert? Let's get started!
Step 1: Preperation
Whenever I start out making something new I read the instructions and make a list of all the items I may need to complete the job. This recipe is fairly simple and the only extra "tools" you would need is a Bundt pan and oven. You can find quality Bundt pans at www.nordicware.com . After reading how I make this sinfully good cake, I encourage you to make this recipe your own and tweak it with your own personal touch. The possibilities are endless and the flavor combinations are yours for the taking.
Step 2: Ingredients
You will need the following items:
- 1 box Vanilla Cake Mix
- 1 box caramel pudding
- 14 oz sour cream
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 3 eggs
Step 3: Optional Topping
- 1 bag of Kraft caramels
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
This topping is not required because the cake is so moist and rich, but if you can't get enough try using this simple caramel sauce.
Step 4: Instructions
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
While your oven is heating up you are going to want to grease up your Bundt pan. You can use butter, shortening, or your own cake release concoction like the one found on thebearfootbaker.com
In a large bowl, combine all the cake ingredients except for the white chocolate chips. Give it a stir with a spoon then grab your mixer and mix on low speed for 30 seconds. Turn the speed up to medium and mix for another minute, or until the mixture is smooth. Stir in the white chocolate chips. Pour the mixture into your greased Bundt pan.
Put the filled Bundt pan in the oven and bake for around 50-55 minutes. You can test the middle of the cake with a toothpick. If the toothpick comes out clean your cake is set, if it is not clean then it needs to bake a little longer. When the cake is set pull it out of the oven and let is sit for 15 minutes. Grab a cake plate and place it over the Bundt pan. Flip it over and your cake will now be right side up on the plate.
Step 6: Icing
While the cake is cooling you want to make the icing.
Grab a saucepan and put it on the stove. Turn the stove on medium heat to heat the pan up a little bit. When the pan is warm add the unwrapped caramels and a tablespoon of milk. Stir constantly until all the caramels are melted. You want to keep stirring because the sauce will burn easily. You can add more milk to get it the consistency you desire. Next you are going to pour the caramel sauce over the Bundt cake.
Step 7: Finishing Touch
The last step is adding the white chocolate chips. You can add them right after you pour the caramel sauce on the cake and the chips will melt slightly. If you want them to hold their shape more then just wait a couple minutes until the sauce cools down but before it hardens.
*********WARNING!!!!! This is an amazing taste bud pleaser. If you have no self control than make sure there are people around to share this White Chocolate Caramel Cake.
