Cooking Vessel SizeBundt cake pan
- 1 cup Butter softened
- 2 1/3 cups sugar
- 1 1/2 tablespoon Vanilla
- 3 eachs eggs, room temperature
- 3 cups all-purpose flour scooped and leveled
- 1 teaspoon Baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
- 1 cup Buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons caramel sauce

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease and flour your bundt tube pan. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar. Cream them together until the mixture is light and fluffy.
Add the vanilla and beat until smooth.
Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition.
In a separate bowl, add the flour, baking powder, and baking soda and whisk them together.
Alternate adding the dry ingredients and the buttermilk to the sugar mixture until you get a thick, smooth batter.
Scoop out 1 cup of the batter and place it in a separate bowl. Add 2 tbsp of caramel sauce and stir to combine. In the prepared bundt pan, add about half of the regular batter. Top that with the caramel batter, and then the remaining regular batter.
Bake in the preheated oven for about 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes, then remove it to a wire rack to finish cooling.
To make the icing, beat 1 cup of the caramel sauce with confectioners sugar and heavy whipping cream. Use a spoon to drizzle the icing over the cake and serve!
