Bizcocho de Caramelo

Bizcocho de Caramelo

My husband was in the mood for something sweet – so he says to me, “I want a Bizcocho!” Now, I’ve been married to this man for over thirty years and not once have I heard of this ‘Bizcocho’. “What is that?”, I replied. “It’s a cake”, he says. A cake that he used to get at a little bakery around the corner from his house growing up. No wonder I didn’t have a clue what it was – but after a little research I found that ‘Bizcocho’ is actually a word that applies to many sweet desserts; cake, cupcakes, cookies…basically anything sweet sold at a bakery! So I concocted my own Bizcocho and named it ‘Bizcocho de Caramelo’.   Note: This dessert has been featured on Fiesta Friday!

Bizcocho de Caramelo
1 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup – 3/4 cup caramel syrup (I used Hershey’s)
1 cup heavy cream (chilled)
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
3/4 cup powdered sugar

Heat the oven to 350 °F. In a mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt. In a larger mixing bowl, combine the eggs, sugar and vanilla. Beat on medium high for 8 minutes until fluffy and light yellow in color. Slowly mix in the milk and flour mixture, scraping the bowl well, until all is incorporated. Pour into a greased 13″x 9″ baking dish and bake in the oven for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 20 minutes. Using a skewer, poke holes in the cake. Drizzle the caramel syrup over the entire cake and let it soak into the poked holes. In a large bowl, combine the heavy cream, mascarpone cheese and powdered sugar. Using an electric mixer, blend until soft peaks form. Spread mascarpone frosting over top of Bizcocho.

  1. Drool…looks delicious! I love desserts that are not chocolate. I am going to do this one with a salted caramel sauce that I make. Maybe with some candied bacon on top. 🙂 Thanks for getting my wheels spinning. Oh yeah, did the hubby like it? Lol…I’m sure it was a hit!
