Salted Caramel Kentucky Butter Cake is a delicious twist on the classic Kentucky Butter Cake, incorporating the rich flavors of salted caramel.

Here’s a basic recipe to make this delectable dessert:

Ingredients: For the cake: 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened 2 cups granulated sugar 4 large eggs 1 tablespoon vanilla extract 3 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 cup buttermilk For the salted caramel glaze: 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter 1 cup packed brown sugar 1/4 cup heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Sea salt flakes, for garnish (optional) Instructions: Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease and flour a 10-inch Bundt pan or use non-stick spray. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the buttermilk. Begin and end with the flour mixture, mixing until just combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared Bundt pan and spread evenly. Bake in the preheated oven for 60-70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. While the cake is baking, prepare the salted caramel glaze. In a saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar, heavy cream, and salt. Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring constantly, for about 2-3 minutes, until it thickens slightly.

Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract. Once the cake is done,

remove it from the oven and allow it to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Carefully invert the cake onto a wire rack placed over a baking sheet or parchment paper. While the cake is still warm, poke holes all over the surface using a skewer or fork. Pour the warm salted caramel glaze over the warm cake, allowing it to seep into the holes and drizzle down the sides. Let the cake cool completely before serving. Optionally, sprinkle sea salt flakes over the top for an extra burst of flavor. Slice and serve, and enjoy your Salted Caramel Kentucky Butter Cake! This cake is perfect for any occasion and is sure to impress with its rich, buttery texture and irresistible salted caramel flavor.
