A brown sugar cake stuffed with a caramel sauce, topped with silky clean chocolate buttercream frosting = one of the best millionaires loaf cake! 

Now I do know I’ve been somewhat heavy on the millionaires theme of bakes through the years, however that’s as a result of I actually can not clarify how a lot I like the millionaires theme. I AM OBSESSED OKAY?!

Truthfully although, a few of these bakes are my most seen recipes ever, so why would I not contribute much more to the theme of utter deliciousness?! My millionaires cake is at all times standard, my millionaires shortbread is insanely standard, and I imply I simply adore my millionaires cupcakes

For this cake, I needed to merge all of those scrumptious recipes into one of the crucial standard forms of cake ever, the loaf cake. I by no means used to know why loaf muffins had been so standard, however they’re simple to serve, simple to bake, and also you get bakes reminiscent of this millionaires loaf cake out of it!


For the sponge I needed to observe my regular concept of a brown sugar sort sponge, that’s extremely simple to make. I are inclined to at all times use the creaming technique of butter and sugar first, as this usually means you gained’t run into issues later.

I discover that in case your butter is simply too chilly, and also you do the multi functional technique, it’s possible you’ll find yourself with a cut up lumpy butter bowl which no one desires of their life! Creaming the butter and sugar collectively prevents this drawback. 

I then add my flour, eggs and flavouring if I exploit any and blend this all collectively. You possibly can add the eggs separately if you want, however I actually don’t suppose it’s obligatory – it simply takes longer for an everyday cake like this. 

  • Butter – For the sponge you’ll be able to simply use a baking unfold, margarine or room temperature butter – all of them work nicely! 
  • Sugar – For this one I made a small change and used darkish brown comfortable sugar as a substitute of my regular mild brown comfortable sugar for a cake like this – I needed a deep caramel flavour and oh my gosh it was scrumptious!
  • Flour – As at all times, self elevating flour for muffins!!
  • Eggs – I used a 4 egg combination for this cake, weighing the eggs in shells acquired me to 225g of egg so I used 225 of the opposite substances! 


The filling is admittedly easy, its caramel sauce that’s prepared made. Nonetheless, you’ll be able to 100% make your individual! I’ve a scrumptious selfmade caramel sauce recipe on my weblog that’s thick, luscious and completely scrumptious and excellent for this. 

The caramel is supposed to be oozy and scrumptious, so it doesn’t ‘set’ within the cake, nevertheless it’s not meant to. I wouldn’t advocate utilizing a millionaires shortbread fashion caramel, as that gained’t work! 

You may as well add salt to the combination if you happen to needed the caramel to be a salted caramel as this may be scrumptious and fight the sweetness very well. 


For the frosting I made a decision to make use of a very fundamental chocolate buttercream. To make it even simpler I did use cocoa powder as this prevents having to soften something, however you should utilize a chocolate fudge icing, or a buttercream with melted chocolate in if you happen to most popular. 

My chocolate fudge icing us on one other degree, however I actually did simply need a thick chocolate style on this, which is very easy to realize with the cocoa powder I exploit. It’s 100% in energy, so a scrumptious chocolatey flavour! 

If you’d like a melted chocolate frosting, you’ll be able to change the cocoa powder with 125g melted darkish chocolate. 

Ideas & Methods 

As with all loaf cake its tremendous necessary to make use of the right sized loaf tin. Annoyingly, as I at all times point out, loaf tins can fluctuate in dimension and it’s SO irritating. I exploit this loaf tin on this recipe for ease, as I exploit in most of my loaf tin recipes. 

I core out the sponge with about an inch border, as you undoubtedly don’t wish to go utterly to the sting. In case you go too close to to the sting, you threat damaging the cake and the caramel would explode out. 

I exploit this piping tip for the ornament as everyone knows how a lot I find it irresistible – a big piping bag with the piping tip in, the frosting, and swirl away. I like a easy ornament, however including some millionaires bites on prime and a few sprinkles simply completed the millionaires loaf cake off completely.
