Mini Salted Caramel Sandwiches


These are deliciously adorable and so cute! A melt-in-your-mouth chocolate sponge sandwiched together with a salty caramel buttercream.

Ingredients

5oz butter or margarine

5oz caster sugar

2 eggs

5oz Free From self raising flour

1tsp vanilla extract

1tbsp cocoa powder

1pinch salt

1tsp baking powder

1tbsp tepid water

Buttercream

6oz icing sugar

1oz butter or margarine

1tbsp caramel (we used a tin of Carnation Caramel)

Rock salt to taste

Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 180C, and grease/flour a mini muffin baking tin

2. Cream the butter and sugar until smooth

3. Add in the eggs, one at a time and mix well

4. Sieve the flour, salt, baking powder and cocoa powder in to the mix

5. Add in the vanilla extract and tepid water

6. Mix well. At this point, the mixture should drop from a spoon.

7. Spoon the mixture in to the muffin moulds - no more than 2/3 full

8. Bake in the oven for around 12 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean

9. Leave to cool in the tray for around 10 minutes, then turn out on to a cooling rack.

For the butter cream filling:

10. Use the whisk attachment on a free standing mixer, or a hand held mixer

11. Place the icing sugar, butter and caramel in to a bowl and whisk for at least 5 minutes until smooth

12. Add extra icing sugar if the buttercream is a little runny - it should cling to the spoon

13. Add in the rock salt to your taste, a little at a time and mix thoroughly. Just don’t add too much!

14. Cut the mini sponges in half, and pipe the buttercream on to the bottom halves

15. Sandwich together with the top halves.

16. Dust with icing sugar

17. Serve and enjoy.
