Rich Salted Caramel Kentucky Butter Cake

Intensely buttery and moist, this Salted Caramel Kentucky Butter Cake practically melts in your mouth! The cake is drenched in a rich butter sauce and topped with a salted caramel glaze that adds a salty-sweet twist to the classic bundt cake.

Let’s get started!

Kentucky butter cake is an incredibly rich, slightly dense, and very buttery bundt cake. It’s similar to pound cake, but it’s lighter in texture and has a more pronounced butter flavor thanks to the butter sauce that’s poured over the cake after it’s taken out of the oven.


1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 10 or 12 cup bundt pan (see notes on how best to prepare your pan).


2. To a medium-sized bowl add the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix together and set aside.


3. In a separate bowl add the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and ginger. Whisk to combine.


4. With the mixer still on low, slowly add the sugar. Once all the sugar is incorporated, increase the speed to medium and beat for two minutes. Using a silicone spatula, periodically scrape the sides down in the mixer.
