Southern Caramel Cake has been around as long as I can remember. When I think of this cake I think of old-fashioned Sunday dinner’s. It’s a labor of love, but well worth it.

Hope you enjoy this old fashion recipe.

All I had on hand was chicken breast, which was fine, but I do think it would be better with thighs.
