Down to the last of Rose's Heavenly Cakes and this Karmel cake is simplicity itself. That must have been why I forgot to add the vanilla. No matter, it was quite good and the next time, I'm sure it will be even better with vanilla. I was surprised the flavor was as mild as it was. If there was a way to ramp it up even more, I'd definitely go for it. Leftover chocolate caramel ganache in the freezer seemed like a good idea but the cake is probably too mild for it. The Haagen Daz Dulce de Leche on the other hand complimented it perfectly. I remember reading in one of Rose's books that ice cream is essentially custard so it can be melted and warmed for a sauce. Perfect blend as it melted over a slice of cake. Microwaved until a warm puddle, it was even better poured over a slice.
