I really have no idea why I haven't posted this cake yet. It is a total hit and very versatile, meaning that so many changes can be made. Such as different toppings or additional fruits can be added to the batter.
The base of the cake is easy. One of the easiest cakes I know how to bake. I usualy whisk everything together and don't even bother with the kitchenaid. Easy, easy, easy.
1.25 cups self rising flour
1.25 cups sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 sachets vanilla sugar (I just go ahead and add my own pure vanilla)
1 cup sour cream
Just mix it all together with a whisk till incorporated. In preheated oven at 160C bake till golden.
Caramel Glaze (from Epicurious.com)
1 cup cream
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 Tbs. corn syrup
1 tsp. pure vanilla
Bring cream, sugar and vanilla to a boil for approx. 12 minutes. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and pour over cooled cake.
Serve at room temp.
