How to make Salted caramel Kentucky butter cake
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 325 degrees F.
Step 2: Ready a 12-cup Bundt pan or 10-inch tube pan. Generously greased, flour, and set aside.
Step 3: Beat the flour, 2 c. sugar, salt, baking powder, club soda, buttermilk, 1 c. butter, 2 tsp vanilla, and eggs in a large bowl on low speed until moist. Adjust the speed of the mixer to medium and continue beating for another 3 minutes. Into the prepared cake pan, spoon the batter, evenly spreading it.
Step 4: Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 55 to 65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
Step 5: Whisk 3/4 c. sugar, 1/3 c. butter, 3 tbsp water, and 2 tsp vanilla in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook while stirring constantly until the butter has melted. DO NOT BOIL.
Step 6: Transfer the cake to a wire rack. Pierce the cake using a fork or skewer while still in the pan, then pour the hot butter sauce over it.
