Rated 4 out of 5 by from French Vanilla Caramel Cake I made this with a couple of changes,I used International Delight french vanilla coffee creamer, no caramel candy on hand so I used Caramel syrup instead the kind for ice cream a thicker version of the syrup, followed all directions.This came out very tasty,moist & beautiful looking.I will continue to use these changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Popular with my co-workers Some reviewers have been confused about the coffee versus creamer. I interpreted it as coffee, the product is an instant flavored coffee in the coffee aisle, I add it in as a dry ingredient and it punches up the flavor. Since I am baking for a crowd, I don't include the nuts and of all the baked goods I make, this one goes fastest. One of my co-workers dubbed this one the 'Caramel Crack Cake' because it is universally loved. (Sadly I can never seem to get the swirls as pretty as the picture, but so far no one has complained).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from French Vanilla Caramel Cake Fantastic and will be making this often but I might be missing something. I did not see anything in the recipe about "coffee" and several people stated that it was too strong with coffee flavor. I assumed the "French Vanilla" was the liquid coffee CREAMER. Am I wrong?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've made this cake twice, once with walnuts and once with pecans. I've made this cake twice, once with walnuts and once with pecans. I like it better with toasted pecans. I had a problem getting the caramel mixture to swirl. I made the recipe both times for a breakfast food and it is a good recipe for that along with any other event.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not like this cake. Did not like this cake. I made it exactly like the recipe said. The coffee over-powered the rest of the flavors. Would not make this again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cake was very good. Cake was very good. I assumed the recipe was calling for international coffee. This does give the cake a coffee flavor too, which is fine if you like coffee

Rated 4 out of 5 by from French Vanilla Caramel Cake This recipe is busy recipe and requires time and diligence. Preparation: Works well but is time consuming. We have worked with other similar recipes and topping. changing the recipe is not here. The only change that I would actually make would but design and contour of the pan's outer edges. To style for holidays. Smart Homes
