|Plum cake without any 'plums', aka caramel cake|
An original Kerala Christmas cake got a few trimmings here and there, to became one of my favorite cakes - the caramel cake. I know, the whole renaming thing sounds just like the story of this chocolate vanilla marble cake that I posted earlier. :) While I was not so confident about recreating the perfect 'Zebra effect' (thereby taking an escape route using 'marble effect'), here I intentionally omitted adding raisins and plums (the obvious addition in a plum cake). The exclusion was only because my sister (this cake was for her) doesn't like raisins. Without dried fruits, nuts and wine / rum, the caramel flavor truly shines through in this recipe.
