Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake

The grande finale to our Thanksgiving festivities on Mendenhall, was a Salted Caramel Chocolate Cale that my mother made. Knowing how popular salted caramel is these days, she searched long and hard for the best looking recipe and ended up choosing The Former Chef’s recipe. There is no shortage of steps in making this – or chocolate in the cake. After purchasing eighteen dollars worth of dark chocolate, we realized that the frosting could be cut in half. There was just as much fudge-like frosting as moist and fluffy cake. Check out the Former Chef’s blog and consider making this for your next party!


  1. The cake was fabulous. I think the cake layers were the best tasting chocolate layers I have ever tasted. The only change I would make would be to use less frosting. I think that much frosting overpowered the cake and the caramel. I highly recommend the recipe. It also was gorgeous.
