  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/Gas 4/fan oven 160C. Butter a 20cm/8in round cake tin and line the base with baking parchment.

  2. Measure the coffee and cocoa into a cup, add the hot water and mix to a smooth paste. Put the butter, sugar, eggs, syrup, flour, milk and cocoa paste in a large mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon or electric beaters for 2-3 minutes until smooth. Break the caramel bars into sections and stir into the mixture.

  3. Turn the mixture into the prepared tin and smooth the top. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the top springs back when you press it lightly. Cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then turn out, peel off the lining paper and leave to cool.

  4. To make the icing, break up the caramel bars and put in a small pan with the butter and milk. Gently heat until smooth, stirring all the time, then remove from the heat and stir in the icing sugar (don’t worry if it doesn’t dissolve immediately, just keep stirring). Leave to cool until it thickens enough to leave a trail when you lift the spoon. Put the cake on a serving plate, spread the icing over the top, letting it fall softly down the sides, then leave to set.

Really nice, but my icing had lumps of icing sugar in, which didn't dissolve when I mixed or left it. Still tasty though.

It is a rich yummy and chocolaty cake. I baked it for my husband's birthday, and all the family members love it, even his fussy brother!

I made this cake for work colleagues and for a friend's birthday, and they were hits!! I added the coffee and you cannot taste it that much, just a hint, will be making this cake again!!

Very Easy to make, the result was a really nice cake. Don't leave out the coffee though as a lot of people seem to have done, as this really made the cake for me.

Made this for friends visiting and it was a hit with us all. Took longer to cook than suggested though. Include the coffee - doesn't taste of coffee but adds to the flavour. Used Sainsbury's own version of Cadbury's caramel. I put the icing in the fridge until it was spreading consistency.

lovely and moist, my partner did`nt look up from his plate till it was all gone. He loves cadburys caramels, so this was a hit with him.

I made this cake earlier today and I have just had a piece and all I can say is WOW. This is one fantastic cake. I did as lots of you have and left out the coffee and it still tasted great. My children said it was lovely so it definately gets the thumbs up in the house. I will definately be making this again.
