Caramel cake

1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
250g butter, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
2 1/4 cups self-raising flour, sifted
1/2 cup milk

Caramel Frosting
125g unsalted butter, chopped
1 1/2 cups pure icing sugar, sifted

Caramel walnuts
1 cup sugar
1 cup walnut halves,
roughly chopped

1 Put sugar in a shallow heavy-based pan over a low heat. Increase heat slightly and, without stirring, tilt pan to swirl sugar and caramel. Continue in this way for
12-15 minutes until all the sugar has dissolved and turns into a golden caramel.

2 Slowly add water to caramel and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook
for 15-20 minutes or until syrup reduces to about half a cup. Pour into a heatproof jug and allow to cool.

3 Preheat oven to 180°C. Line base and sides of a 22 x 10cm loaf tin with baking paper. Cream butter and brown sugar in the small bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until combined. Transfer mixture to a large bowl. Add flour, milk and one-quarter cup of the cooled caramel and, using a large metal spoon, gently fold in until combined.

4 Pour mixture into prepared tin and smooth top. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted in the centre. Remove the cake from the oven and stand on a wire rack for 10 minutes before turning out to cool. Spread cake with Caramel frosting and top with Caramel walnuts.

5 To make Caramel frosting: Beat butter in a bowl with electric beaters until light and fluffy. Add icing sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, while continuing to beat. Drizzle in 2 tablespoons of remaining caramel sauce and beat until combined and creamy.

6 To make Caramel walnuts: Line an oven tray with baking paper. Put sugar in a shallow heavy-based pan over a low heat and allow to dissolve, tilting pan often. Bring to a gentle simmer for 7-10 minutes until syrup turns a light golden colour. Add walnuts and tilt pan to swirl caramel until nuts are coated. Pour onto prepared tray and leave to set. Break into pieces when firm.
