Today's SWEETness comes in the form of Caramel Latte Cake....


Caramel Latte Cake
(Adapted from Betty Crocker)

What You'll Need:
1 box butter cake mix
1 cup warm water
1 Tb. instant coffee granules
1/3 cup butter, melted
3 eggs
1 can (13.4 oz) dulce de leche
1/2 cup + 1 Tb  hot water
2-3 Tb instant coffee granules
1 (8 oz) container whipped cream
Unsweetened baking cocoa to dust

Here's How:
1. Heat oven to 350*. Spray the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish.

2. In a large bowl, place cake mix. In a separate small bowl, mix warm water and coffee granules. Add the coffee, butter and eggs to the cake mix. Beat on low for 30 seconds and then on medium for 2 minutes. Pour batter into pan.

3. Bake as directed on box and then cool in pan on cooling rack for 15 minutes.

4. While cake is baking, spoon dulce de leche into a medium microwavable bowl. In a small bowl, mix hot water and coffee granules; stir into dulce de leche until smooth. Microwave uncovered on high 2-3 minutes. Whisk until pourable after it's heated. Set aside until cake is ready.

5. Poke semi-cooled cake every 1/2 inch with a wooden spoon handle. Pour dulce de leche mixture evenly over cake; spread evenly with a metal spatula to fill holes. Run a knife around the edges to loosen cake and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. (Mine went overnight)

6. Before you serve, spread whipped cream evenly over the top of the cold cake. Dust with cocoa powder if desired.

Serve and enjoy!
