Old-Fashioned Caramel Buttermilk Cake

  • 2 c brown sugar
  • 2 c buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • 2 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Soda
  • 5 Tablespoons Hot water
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla

Cream sugar and eggs. Sift together flour and cocoa, dissolve baking soda into water, and combine all ingredients.
Grease and flour pan. Bake at 350 until done (55-60 minutes for a bundt pan).

Glaze:

  • 1 lb powdered sugar (3-4 c.)
  • 1 8oz package of cream cheese
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
Combine all ingredients and pour over cake while still warm, but not hot.

Note: I made a half batch of glaze, and it was plenty. I also had to microwave it for 30-40 secs to get it to a pourable consistency.


Look at how well this came out of the pan. I just let it cool for half an hour and it came right out!
