The visual disaster that was Nigella's Gin and Tonic Jelly was intended to be a Mother's Day dinner dessert, so in light of it's 6pm failure I had to find another dessert recipe to make, and pronto. Cue a quick search of Smitten Kitchen and the discovery of this caramel cake recipe.
It's basically a vanilla butter cake dressed up with caramel topping and gosh it's lovely. I think it will become my emergency-people-are-coming-over-in-five-minutes cake to bake.
The next day I fed Dad and Rahul pieces that I microwaved for 30 seconds which came out looking just like some kind of vanilla caramel pudding and would have been perfect with a scoop of ice cream. Yum.
