Tips

  • This is an extremely tasty, festive cake. So double the quantities for parties or family gatherings.
  • If you find it hard to spread the batter on the baking sheet, use small strokes from the center towards the edges. The batter is very forgiving. Even if you have a small hole, it will cover it when it bakes.

FabHow Tips

  • You can add more texture and flavor to this cake by garnishing it with a layer of bitter, dark chocolate flakes on top.
  • You can either grate the chocolate using a cheese grater or use a chopping knife to shred it into thin flakes.
  • Another interesting topping for this cake can be thin apple slices; they will give the cake a crisp and refreshing taste and help balance out the sweetness.
  • Take a crisp, medium-sized apple and thinly slice in into crescent or half-moon shape. Rub the apple slices with a piece of lemon on both sides to prevent them from browning. Use them to decorate the squares in any pattern you wish.
  • Or you can add chopped nuts to the caramel filling on top. After applying the final layer of caramel filling, sprinkle over a blend of different chopped nuts like almonds, walnuts, pecans or cashews nuts. You can even add in a few raisin or dried black currents to the mix.
  • Another quirky topping can be caramelized popcorn; it may sound a bit weird, but believe us it will add a delicious , crunchy and fun texture to the layered cake squares.
