Caramel Cake

Shirley says: “This Caramel cake has been a family favorite for years now. I am required to make it every year at Thanksgiving and anytime during the year when someone starts thinking about it. This is really the incredibly disappearing Caramel Cake!”



Never fear, here’s the recipe for the icing!

  2. Kristen, I hate to see this series end. It has been so nice sharing recipes and getting great ‘new’ recipes from fellow bloggers. They are all so good! I have got to try these Pumpkin Cheesecakes too! Thank you so much for featuring one of my favorite recipes for The Tastiest Thanksgiving Ever 🙂

  3. Oh these look and sound delicious especially that caramel cake with the icing. I love almost anything caramel but my hubby would beg to differ. He would say the pumpkin cheesecake was the best one. He LOVES cheesecake. I’m going to have to try one or maybe both. Maybe you’ll have another series for Christmas? Let’s hope. 🙂

    • It’s really a toss-up – there are so many great idea in this series! I MAY have another one for Christmas, I’m not sure yet. I have a Christmas Home Tour Series that I’m already putting together…I don’t want to “series” everyone out LOL

  4. You have hit on one of my Hubs favorite things to eat. Caramel Cake. Kind of sad that he gave up sugar. I was looking at the recipe, and I think I could substitue a sweetner that he can use in place of the sugar. He was using xylitol but we found it isn’t good for you either. I am going to have to think on this…. he would be like a kid in a candy store If I made caramel cake for him.

  5. Mmm… caramel… something I like even better than chocolate! Both of these recipes sound and look delicious. This has been such an awesome series…thanks for everything! 🙂 PINNED!

  6. whoops, didn’t realize that this ended today. I was going to submit a recipe, but with all this fever, flu, rash, yuck in our house, I didn’t get to. 🙁 We are on the upswing though. Prayers please. Anyway, That caramel cake looks scrumptious! 🙂 I’m getting fat just looking at these recipes.

  7. Thanks for all these wonderful recipes and hosting this series. Enjoyed it so much! I wanted to join in, but am new to this….couldn’t get it together….maybe next time!

  8. Those desserts are a nice change from the usual! They look scrumptious! It is difficult to pick just one, but I think this Thanksgiving I am going with the pumpkin cheesecakes! Thank you for sharing!
