Handle the Heat’s Monthly Baking Challenge
Amazing ingredients make for tender and moist cake! I’ve been a fan of Bob’s Red Mill products for years. Their Organic Unbleached White All Purpose Flour is my go-to for this cake recipe. I also love that Bob’s is an employee owned company. Our sponsor is generously providing exciting prizes for THREE winners this month, so check out their links below!

Tip One: This recipe calls for sour cream which helps add flavor and contribute a rich and tender texture. If you don’t have sour cream on hand feel free to use plain yogurt, just make sure it’s full fat for best results!
Tip Two: Use homemade or store-bought caramel here! Here’s my easy recipe for homemade caramel. If you use store-bought, I prefer Trader Joe’s brand.
Tip Three: To double this recipe to serve a larger group, double all ingredients and bake in a 9 by 13-inch pan and bake for 40 to 50 minutes.
My Favorite Tools for this Challenge
The Handle the Heat community is filled with enthusiastic home bakers just like you! In my humble opinion, people who like to bake are the BEST kind of people. Creative, thoughtful, and extra sweet. Every month hundreds of people in the HTH community join in our monthly baking challenges… hopefully you will too!
I’m so happy you’re here!
