You know that the caramel in this cake is made by steaming condensed milk in the tin for hours and hours 'till it turns lovely sticky and brown well I was in Tesco last week and they are selling tins of caramel ready made by Carnation of evaporated milk fame. I bought a tin but hav'nt tried it yet will report how good or bad it is when I do.

Well how on earth did I miss this topic , caramel cake! Oh my all time favourite from dinner school. okay yes another of my favourites, I have a few laugh.gif Anyway marydee the caramel in a tin is just like the boil in a tin stuff , it became unsafe to boil it in the tin as apparently the tins could explode , and as much as I love caramelised condensed milk , it is not so appealing when it is red hot and sticking to your face.The tinned variety as I said is good , it is especially nice straight from the can via a teaspoon into ones gob.Oh heaven!

Sweet tooth .....ME! .......NEVER! rolleyes.gif

I do bake blind a shotcrust pastry base then the school meals way in englad was 1lb of brown sugar 1/2 lb marg or butter cook of in double boiler then add 1/4 pint of milk heated up then add to mixture then slowley add 1/4 lb of flour and that should thicken mixture then keep stirring in double boiler untill smooth and the sugar has disolved then add to cooked pastry base then when cooled add either chocolate melted or vermacelli ok

or if you want an easier version pierce can of condenced milk and simmer in boiled water half way up the can do not get water in can or it wont work properly then add to pastry mix happy cooking and baking wub.gif
