Dark chocolate cake layers with homemade salted caramel frosting and a salted caramel drip.
My dark chocolate salted caramel cake was one of the first cakes I ever made, but it’s always been listed on my site as two separate recipes: chocolate cake and salted caramel frosting. Just feels like it’s time to give the full cake it’s own place on here, don’t you think?
A Classic Hit
This cake has been a hit since the first time I made it a few years ago. In fact, it was Ryan’s favorite until my Samoa Cake came along last month, which knocked down the Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Cake into second place. Haha!
The slightly bitter dark chocolate cake layers compliment the salty and sweet frosting so well. And while the cake is decadent and rich, the frosting is light and fluffy – creating a cake that doesn’t feel too heavy or too rich.
I have made this cake at least a dozen times and somehow never manage to get a shot of the inside. This year I made it again for Ryan’s birthday, with every intention to take pictures of the inside, but somehow, it never happened. So, here’s a single shot of this delicious cake that I hope you love as much as we do!
