We're always after new ideas for cakes so when we asked on our Facebook page what you'd like to see us make - we were very pleased with the answer! A Millionaire's cake!

  • 1/2tsp baking powder
  • Few drops of vanilla essence

For the filling and topping

  • Ready made caramel
  • 200g bar of dark chocolate

You could make this cake with homemade salted caramel


  1. Preheat your oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4. Line or grease 2x 20cm/8" round cake tins.
  2. Combine all the cake ingredients together and mix well. Pour the mixture evenly into the two prepared tins and bake for 20-25mins until golden brown and springy to the touch.
  3. Remove the cakes from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
  4. Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave in short bursts, stirring in between. Allow to cool.

Brilliant recipe!!! Fiance loves millionaire's shortbread so i thought i'd get him the birthday cake version. Asda sells one but was out of stock so decided to bake one myself and he loved it!!! I put chocolate curls on the top as decoration, dont leave to set for too long or will be too hard to cut.
