For the Cake:

  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt

For the Caramel Frosting:

  • 14 oz. sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract



  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a Bundt pan.
  • Add the butter to a saucepan over low heat and stir until melted. Stir in the milk and vanilla and heat until the mixture begins to bubble around the edges, but does not boil.
  • Meanwhile, add the eggs and sugar to a mixer and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda.
  • Slowly pour some of the milk mixture into the mixer while it’s running. Add ½ of the flour mixture, then the remainder of the milk mixture, then remainder of the flour mixture.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared Bundt Pan and bake for 1 hour.
  • Let cake cool in the pan for 10 minutes before inverting over a wire rack to continue cooling.


  • Combine the sweetened condensed milk and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium high heat and bring to a boil, whisking constantly.
  • Then reduce the heat and allow the mixture to simmer for 5 minutes, continuing to whisk. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter and vanilla until smooth.
  • Let cool for 10 minutes or until it is cool enough to handle, then pour over the cooled cake.
