"Started making this over 30 years ago but must admit a long time since I made it (so times a memory estimate). For the caramel sauce I use my own recipe #recipe14188 - this is the only one I have used so I don't know how any others would work BUT DO NOT USE commercial caramel sauce toppings made for icecream the are to thin, you will end up with a yukky cake. I usually slice the cake and freeze in an air tight container for the DH to take to work for his morning or afternoon tea."

Step 1

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350F) (for fan forced oven you may need to lower by about 5-10 degrees Celsius).

Step 2

Grease with butter a 20cm (8inch) bundt/baba cake tin (one which gives you a hole in the centre of the cake).

Step 3

Sift flours together.

Step 4

Cream butter and sugar in electric mixer until soft and well blended, add eggs one at a time blending well between each addition.

Step 5

Add flour and milk alternating between the two starting and ending with flour.

Step 6

Spread half of the mixture into the prepared cake tin, spread the caramel sauce mixture over and then spread remaining cake mixture over (at this point you can take a skewer and swirl through the mixture to entwine the caramel more into the cake - OPTIONAL).

Step 7

Bake in oven for 40 - 45 minutes - test with a skewer and if comes out clean it is cooked.

Step 8

Leave to stand in tin for 5 minutes before turning out.

Step 9

If serving warm dust with icing sugar or slice and freeze in an air tight container or zip lock bag removing as much air as possible.
