Chocolate Charlotte Cake with Caramel Filling

I came across a recipe on the King Arthur Baking Company website while searching for a sour dough bread baking crock, and was delighted. I am always looking for new cakes since I already have the Charlotte Cake Pan, I gave it a try for a Valentine's Day dessert, and we cheated and already had a piece last evening. I always wait for Joe to comment, and he gave it five stars. It has a lovely caramel filling. 

If you own this pan, you shouldn't hesitate to make this cake. It has a nice presentation, and is easy to make for a special occasion. I'm going to add a chocolate covered strawberry on the side when he have it with tonight's dinner.
My Valentine and I visited the Saranac Lake Ice Castle this year. Even with all the restrictions, the castle was delightful. 
We have a new granddaughter to spoil. Harper June was born on February 9. 

Happy Valentine's Day

  1. Oh my goodness! You have four grandchildren now?! Congratulations on your newest bundle of perfection! The Charlotte cake looks wonderful and the recipe details delicious! I may need to get one of those pans! I bet a pinch of sea salt would make it taste even better!
