What you need:

For the butter cake  (Sift the following)

  • 2 1/2 cup cake flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt

And combine these ingredients in a bowl, using a mixer:

  • 1 small bar margarine (ideally butter)
  • 1 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 cup fresh milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 eggs

For the salted caramel frosting

  • 3 cups sugar (I used brown)
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 tsp salt (I added 1 tbsp)
  • 1 small bar butter/margarine
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup crushed walnuts

What to do:

  • Mix margarine and sugar until frothy. Add the 4 eggs, one at a time. Combine flour mixture and add fresh milk, vanilla.
  • Divide mixture in 9×13 pans (greased and floured) and bake at 375 °F at 25-30 minutes.
  • For the caramel:
  • In a sauce pan, combine sugar, evaporated milk and salt. Bring to a boil until it reaches a soft ball texture and let it cool for 5 minutes, then add the butter, vanilla and crushed walnuts. Whisk until combined.
  • When cake is done, set on a rack to cool then layer with frosting.
  • Serve and devour!
