The Best Caramel Cake in the World

Prep Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour| Yield: 1 tall cake or 3 single layer cakes

Ingredients:

  • 1 box Duncan Hines Butter Recipe Golden cake mix (MUST be this one)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 8 oz cream cheese

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Get out your mixer.
  2. Combine all ingredients. Mix slowly for 1 minute. Scrape the bowl, and mix on medium for 2 minutes.
  3. Pour into 3 (three)  8″ pans and bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. I’ve also made this in 2 (two) 9″ pans, and it turned out fine. Bake for 30 minutes if you do this.
