Method

  1. To make the burnt sugar, put the sugar in a heavy-bottomed frying pan over a medium-high heat. Stir this occasionally as the sugar starts to melt.
  2. When the sugar becomes a very dark brown take if off the heat and add the hot water very slowly and stir until it is dissolved. Set is aside to cool.
  3. To make the cake, preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Line two round cake tins with baking paper.
  4. In a large bowl, sift the flour and the baking powder. For a very fluffy cake, sift it several times.
  5. In another bowl cream the butter and the sugar together until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the eggs in one at a time, beating well after each one. Stir in both the vanilla and the brown sugar syrup you made earlier.
  6. Add the dry ingredients and the milk alternatively to the creamed butter/sugar mixture. Beat until smooth.
  7. Pour the batter into the cake tins and bake for 25-30 minutes. Eat as is or top with whatever you like. We drizzled ours with caramel (tinned) and some crushed nuts.
