What is a Coffee and Caramel Cake ?

​​This coffee and caramel cake is an adaptation of the classic French dessert called the creme caramel, which is also popularly known as caramel custard. A caramel custard has the base of French custard baked over some intense caramel and then chilled in the fridge till it sets. This custard is then turned out of the mould and then devoured with delight. Similar to this, in the coffee caramel cake, there is a coffee flavoured custard, but it is placed over a shortcrust base and topped with caramel. As it is in a non-stick springform pan, it can easily be moulded without turning it upside down.
