Two words: Salted. Caramel.
Be still my beating heart.
Salted Caramel is the taste sensation that shows no sight of ending. Quite rightly so, for the combination of butter, sugar, syrup, salt and cream is simply sublime, prompting spontaneous groans from serious-minded men and women, who are helpless before its power.
I adore salted caramel but had never made it at home. So when Sweet Adventures’ Feeling Saucy blog hop rolled around, I knew my moment had come.
For those new readers, Sweet Adventures is a group of Aussie foodbloggers – 84th & 3rd, The Capers of the Kitchen Crusader, Delicieux, Dining With a Stud, and I, The Hungry Australian, who host a monthly, dessert-themed blog hop.

This month KC at the Capers of the Kitchen Crusader is our lovely hostess so if you blog and love to cook check out her Feeling Saucy post and join in the fun. You have until Monday September 24th to join the hop.
To make this cake, I used this great chocolate cake recipe I created for AustralianFood.About.com and adapted this salted caramel sauce recipe by Nigella Lawson for Stylist Magazine.
Make it. Eat it.
You’ll weep, dance and sing.
