Chocolate Chip Caramel Cake Recipe

When I want to serve a treat that's pretty and delicious, I make this scrumptious cake. Dotted with chocolate chips and topped with caramel icing, pecans and a chocolate drizzle, it's absolutely irresistible! -Michele VanDewerker, Roseboom, New York
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings


  • 1 package (18-1/4 ounces) white cake mix
  • 1-1/2 cups vanilla yogurt
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon shortening


  • 1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the first five ingredients. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes. Stir in chocolate chips. Spread into a well-greased and floured 10-in. fluted tube pan. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes; invert onto a wire rack to cool completely.
  • 2. For topping, combine the butter and brown sugar in a saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Boil for 2 minutes. Stir in milk and vanilla. Return to a boil; remove from the heat and cool slightly. Add sugar; beat on high with a portable mixer for 30 seconds or until thickened. Drizzle over cake. Sprinkle with nuts.
  • 3. In a microwave, melt chocolate and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over top. Yield: 12-16 servings.

"lovely cake- my daughter requested a cake with carmel for her birthday. This was a great choice. Good texture, moist. I used 3 whole eggs (because I was too lazy to seperate 4 eggs)."

"This cake is so delicious. I've made it approx. 10 times and EVERYONE loves it and asks for the recipe. My Bunco group requests it everytime I host. Just make sure your icing is warm enough and it will drizzle just right."
