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! Why had we never thought of it before? The classic combination of dark chocolate and caramel is transferred from it's usual shortbread base to this vanilla sponge. Delicious!


  • 150g sugar
  • 150g butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 150g self-raising
  • 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.
  5. Once the cakes have cooled, sandwich together with a thick layer of the ready made caramel and pour the melted chocolate over the top of the cake. Place in the fridge until the chocolate sets.

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.
