Using electric mixer, add hot water slowly until the batter is smooth and there are no lumps. Set batter aside.

  • Pour batter into the pan until about 3/4 of the way filled and even out batter in the pan.

  • Bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick test comes out clean. Cool for about 20 minutes before removing from the pan.

  • Carefully remove from microwave and stir in chocolate chips until the chocolate ganache becomes smooth.

  • Coat the top of the cooled cake with the chocolate ganache. Drizzle over desired amount salted caramel and top with Falksalt Natural Sea Salt Flakes.
