Crazy moist Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate Cake, busting with milk chocolate covered toffee bits, coated in Caramel Icing and smothered in silky chocolate ganache. THE only chocolate cake recipe you ever need!
I can’t resist its siren calls. Whether it’s dark, white, semi-sweet, or milk chocolate – I answer every time. I try and be polite that way. Whether in cake, brownies, fudge sauce, candy bars, cookies, ice cream, mousse etc., chocolate makes the blissful world of desserts go-round.
My favorite rich dose of chocolate is chocolate cake – this Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate Cake to be precise because it is mouthfuls of chocolate and caramel. Divine. I adapted my favorite chocolate cake recipe used in my Peppermint Chocolate Cake and infused it with GREEN & BLACK’S ORGANIC Toffee Milk Chocolate. So yes, this cake boasts, chocolate, caramel and toffee! It’s every bit as delicious as you are imagining right now – and then some.
The delectable, buttery, smooth and crunchy organic milk toffee bars get melted as part of the cake batter, chopped pieces get stirred into the batter, and lastly, the milk chocolate toffee adorns each tier of the double rich cake.
With that much chocolate, it better be quality, goooood chocolate so I use GREEN & BLACK’S ORGANIC Chocolate. It is 100% organic and certified Fair Trade. They are a company committed to supporting farming communities around the world who supply them with the delicious Fair Trade ingredients that make their premium, certified organic chocolate bars possible. Creating the perfect balance of exceptional organic ingredients and mouthwatering flavors is the goal of GREEN & BLACK’S ORGANIC Chocolate, and the result is the best tasting organic chocolate bars possible, in my humble opinion. (See HERE for a complete GREEN & BLACK’S ORGANIC Chocolate brand history and philosophy.)
The crazy, moist, uber-chocolaty cake gets a double layer of silky, Salted Caramel Icing – which is barely enough for how badly you are gong to want to eat it with a spoon. The bit of saltiness balances out the milk chocolate sweetness and keeps you coming back for more. For my cake, I frosted it with a thin layer of icing, then let it set then frosted it again with a second layer for a completely enveloped, more opaque look, but you can just frost once and be done – completely up to you! Both taste AH-mazing.
The crowning glory of this Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate Cake is the silky chocolate ganache: soooo smooth, soft and the perfect compliment to the texture of the crystalized sugary caramel icing.
And the siren calls begin…
After I had finished photographing this cake, I called a few friends to see if they were home so I could drop some off – no one was home. So the cake sat on our counter all day, and all night. By the second day, half the cake was gone. True story. It’s that good. That irresistible. That chocolaty. Thank you GREEN & BLACK’S ORGANIC Chocolate.
