Easy White Cake with Caramel Sauce

White Cake

Preheat oven to 350º 

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup milk

Line a 9x9 pan with parchment. Cream butter. Cream sugar into butter. Beat eggs into creamed mixture. Add vanilla and salt. Add flour. Finally add milk and baking powder. Pour into pan and bake 30-40 minutes. A toothpick should come out clean.

Caramel Sauce

1 cup sugar
6 tbsp butter
1/2 cup whipping cream

Melt sugar over medium low head. It's said that swirling the pan is better than stirring it. As soon as the last sugar crystal melts, add the butter and stir in vigorously.  Add the cream and keep stirring. Boil hard for 5 minutes. Cool and serve.

Don't count on serving caramel sauce to guests until you've tried it a few times and are sure you can execute it properly every time. This batch had a hint of over cooked, still tasted good, barely.
