This recipe was a mistake.  A beautiful mistake, but a mistake all the same.  I was developing a recipe for my son’s teacher as an end of year gift (that recipe is coming soon).  With my first run of the recipe, the cake wasn’t sweet enough for what I was going for.  I didn’t want to waste it though and since I was having a little party for my son’s friends and knew I’d have parents popping in, I wanted to find a way to save the cake and make it something everyone would enjoy.  Who doesn’t like caramel, right?  So, I whipped some up, poured it over the cake and it was a roaring success!  Everyone loved it so that’s how my mistake became this glorious dessert!

If you’re going to pour caramel over a cake, my opinion is that it shouldn’t be too sweet so I left the recipe just as it was in my first draft.  It will look like a lot of sugar because it calls for three different types, but each type of sugar is a fairly small amount.  I used both dark and light brown sugar because I wanted different depths of flavor and the super fine, granulated sugar adds a bit more sweetness…..
