Decades upon decades of this cake are made down south, but this is the true version of caramel cake from the south that you want. The icing alone is spectacular, but when drizzled over this moist and tempting yellow butter cake it makes for a decadent treat that everyone will want to fall to their knees for. It should be a bit dense, and you’ll find many of the copycat recipes are not. Trust me when I say, this is it and then you’ll know why it’s so much better than all the rest.
My family would know for certain if they were being fed something else. I would get disappointed looks. Not that they wouldn’t eat it, but I am just saying us southerners know our stuff. The same can be said for biscuits and gravy, chicken and dumplings and sweet tea. I suggest you follow this one to the “T” and see what I’m talking about.
