Online Class: How to Make Salted Caramel Cake

What is with Salted Caramel that it took the world by storm?

It is in all sorts of pastries and desserts. ice cream, macarons, cakes, brittles, nougat, creme brule and other form of sweet.

What sorcery is that?

Why hello caramel!

Let us begin by getting ourselves acquainted or re-acquainted with the beloved caramel. In just my opinion, other than chocolate, we are very much familiar with caramel. Well not in a way that we can identify different sweets with caramel in them but we have tasted or even seen them but may have no idea that it has caramel in them.

So what is caramel? Caramel is made by heating sugar. The word caramel was derived from the Spanish word Caramelo, which means candy.

From caramel comes different heavenly concoctions. When mixed with cream it becomes caramel sauce. Now mixed with butter, cream and vanilla you can make Toffee and of course why we are all here, Salted Caramel.

Enter Henri Le Roux

Where did Salted Caramel come from?

Salted caramel is not a recent invention by modern alchemists nor is it a classic recipe. It was made by Henri Le Roux more than 30years ago

Henri Le Roux is a chocolatier. He learned from his father who was a famous pastry chef. He studied at COBA in Switzerland which was the only candy school at the time.

When he went back he spent time with ice cream and creams. But he wanted to stand out and searched for a new product. Since he was in Brittany, France he used what was accessible, salted butter.

After testing, he finally came up with his Salted Caramel. It was an unexpected success. News traveled fast because of word of mouth.

It was that good! Imagine the speed on how the news broke out without Twitter, Instagram or Facebook!

He now runs a very successful global chocolate company named Maison Le Roux.

Why is Salted Caramel so addictive?

Have you tasted salted caramel flavored cakes, ice creams or anything with it? Once you have started you can’t stop. The saltiness cuts through the rich caramel. Your taste buds do not tire and ask for another flavor.

Apparently, its addictiveness has caught the attention of researchers as to why.

The research led by University of Florida, found out that we get high! Well not exactly high but it was like taking heroin. This is because our brain releases heroin like chemicals called  endogenous opioids when we take in something sweet, salty or fatty. All of which are found in Salted Caramel!

Now you know where to get that high!

Get that high, from your own kitchen!

Yes you! You can whip up your own addictive salted caramel cakes.

Imagine that luscious salted caramel on top off an amazing chiffon! You not only ensure the freshness but know what you put in your table.
