Browned butter creates the "wow" in a caramel-frosted cake jump-started with a cake mix.

Ingredients

Cake

1/3
cup butter (do not use margarine)
1
box Betty Crocker™ SuperMoist™ butter recipe yellow cake mix
1
cup water
2
teaspoons vanilla
3
eggs

Frosting

1
can (13.4 oz) dulce de leche (caramelized sweetened condensed milk)
1
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2
cup whipping cream

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease or spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan.
  • 2 In 1-quart saucepan, heat butter over medium heat 4 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently, just until golden brown. Remove from heat. Cool 15 minutes.
  • 3 In large bowl, beat cake mix, browned butter, water, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes (brown flecks from butter will appear in batter). Pour into pan.
  • 4 Bake as directed on box for 13x9-inch pan. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 5 Meanwhile, in large bowl, beat dulce de leche and cream cheese with electric mixer on high speed about 2 minutes or until blended and smooth. Beat in whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Spread frosting over cooled cake. Serve immediately, or refrigerate until serving. Store loosely covered in refrigerator.
Tips  

You won't want to substitute margarine or vegetable oil spreads for the butter in this richly flavored recipe. Because those products don't contain the milk proteins found in butter, they will not brown and will burn instead.

For a crunchy topper, try sprinkling this caramel cake with chopped macadamia nuts or toasted coconut.

Substitute 1 container Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting for the frosting, and drizzle with 1/3 cup caramel topping.
