Steps of making delicious Cake sponge

  • Heat up your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • In a larger bowl, beat the eggs with sugar first. Then for further proceedings, add baking powder, butter, cream, salt, and vanilla essence.
  • Also, add oil and beat well with a beater until you get a creamy, fluffy texture.
  • Put in all-purpose flour and blend. But make sure you do not over mix.
  • Now take your round baking pan, grease it with the oil, and put parchment paper at the bottom. Pour your liquid pudding into the pan evenly.

How to make caramel icing with evaporated milk

  • Take a saucepan and throw the butter in it. Now add the evaporated milk and sugar and let it simmer until the sugar melts.
  • Keep on whisking it continually as the sugar melts. The process is a little time-consuming as the sugar melting process is pretty slower. It takes at least 1 hour.
  • When you confirm that the caramel is perfectly golden browned, check its thickness with a spoon.
  • The major factor in making the caramel is heat. Keep the flame lower so that it will not burn out.
  • Cool it for 15 minutes and if it is not thick enough then cool it in the refrigerator.
  • Now it's high time to ice our cake sponge with the prepared caramel.
  • Top your cake with the golden caramel that will pop it up with the color and the flavor and Hurrah! Your favorite cake covered with caramel is ready. Slice it and present it to your family.
