Forget boxed cake mix! This chocolate cake with caramel frosting comes together really fast, and you don't need any...

  • FOR THE CAKE:
  • (makes 28 cupcakes, and reduce baking time to approximately 20 minutes)
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cups unsweetened cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup black coffee, cooled (I used a dark roast coffee. You can't taste the coffee, but the chocolate is deeper in flavor and richness with this ingredient)
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or 1 tablespoon lemon juice with milk to equal 1 cup; or 1 tablespoon vinegar with milk to equal 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup canola (or vegetable) oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • CARAMEL SYRUP:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup water
  • CARAMEL FROSTING:
  • 12 tablespoons (that's 1-1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
  • 6 cups powdered sugar*
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons heavy cream (I used 4 tablespoons)**
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 to 4 tablespoons caramel syrup (I used 2 tablespoons; recipe below)
  • Pinch kosher salt (important... salted caramels are the food rage, these days)
