Description

A fragrant dessert with a moist cake and delicious homemade caramel.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE CAKE:
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • 1-½ cup Sugar
  • 2 sticks Unsalted Butter, At Room Temperature
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 cup Buttermilk
  • 1 cup Fig Preserves
  • 2 cups All-purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • FOR THE CARAMEL SAUCE:
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 pint Heavy Cream, Warmed
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • ½ teaspoons Sea Salt

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350 F and butter and flour a 12-cup bundt pan. Set pan aside.

Add the eggs and sugar to a large bowl and beat together until creamed. Beat in the butter and vanilla followed by the buttermilk and fig preserves.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda and salt then slowly beat it into the batter. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour or until a cake tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Remove pan from oven and set it on a rack. Allow cake to cool completely before inverting it out of the pan onto a serving plate.

Make the caramel sauce by melting the sugar in a pot over a low to medium flame. Do not stir. When the sugar has completely dissolved, remove it from the heat and add the warm heavy cream. The mixture will bubble up. Return to a low heat and stir vigorously until all lumps are gone and the sauce is a light golden brown. Finish by stirring in the butter and sea salt and remove from the heat.

When the cake has cooled, pour caramel sauce over the top and serve the remainder on the side. Makes 10-12 servings.

I had to try this for a family holiday cookie exchange. I had to hunt all over my grocery store to find fig preserves, but was successful. I loved the cake! I will admit that I used a different caramel sauce recipe that has worked for me in the past, but the cake was lovely! Thanks for sharing.
