Salted Caramel Mini Loaf Cakes

Recently I have been looking at older recipes that I have done and how I can improve the recipes and the blog posts.

This recipe came around because I wanted to up date a salted caramel cake I did back in 2018 but didn’t have the time so decided mini loaf cakes were the way to go.

These mini loaf cakes are fully loaded with salted caramel flavour. I used Juddes Salted Caramel Sauce and Sugar and Crumbs Salted Caramel Flavour Icing Sugar to give these cakes such an intense flavour.

I used about a tbsp of the icing sugar in to the actual cake mixture which is added when I add the flour to the wet ingredients.

Now I will admit a mistake when I made these and that was adding the sauce to the top of the mixture once it is in the tin because the sauce just sunk to the bottom of the cake and make the cakes sticky.

Even with my mistake these tasted incredible and even tasted a little sticky toffee which wasn’t to bad.
