Gingerbread Cake With Warm Caramel Sauce

When I was a little girl and the weather would start to turn cool, my mom would make gingerbread cake with ooey gooey caramel sauce all over it.  It's comfort food at it's best. I made some last night and my daughter pronounced it the most awesome thing ever.  I hope that you love it just as much as we do!
 

Gingerbread Cake With Warm Caramel Sauce

Ingredients: 
Cake:
one boxed gingerbread cake mix and ingredients to prepare it

Sauce:
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 Tablespoons corn syrup
3 Tablespoons butter
1/2 tsp vanilla

Directions:
Prepare gingerbread cake as the box instructs.  For the sauce- mix the first 4 ingredients and cook just to boiling, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and add vanilla.  Stir until smooth.  Pour on top of warm gingerbread cake.  I like to poke holes in the cake with a fork when it is just out of the oven so that it soaks up the sauce. Enjoy! 

P.S.  Leftover caramel sauce is mindblowing over ice cream :-)
