Caramel Cake

Southern caramel cake is typically a multi-layered affair of yellow sponge cake that many see as just a delivery vehicle for the decadent caramel frosting. This simple, somewhat healthier one-layer version of the popular dessert has caramel with benefits. Sweet potato adds another dimension of flavor to the frosting while muscling out some sugar.

Prep - 40 m
Ready In - 1 h 40 m
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  2. For caramel: Combine sweet potato, brown sugar, water, 2 tablespoons butter and salt in an 8-inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Set aside. 
  3. To prepare cake: Butter an 8-inch round cake pan, line the bottom with parchment and butter again. Flour the pan and tap out excess. 
  4. Whisk buttermilk and vanilla in a small bowl. Combine pastry flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt in a stand mixer. Beat on low speed with the paddle attachment until well mixed. Add oil and beat until evenly distributed. With the mixer on, add butter 1 tablespoon at a time and beat until each addition is fully incorporated before adding more. The mixture should look like coarse sand. Add egg and yolk; beat until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed. With the mixer on, add the buttermilk mixture in a slow, steady stream. Beat just until smooth. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and spread evenly. 
  5. Place the cake and the reserved sweet potato mixture in the oven. Bake the cake until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Bake the sweet potato mixture, stirring occasionally, until the sweet potato is tender and the liquid is thick and bubbling, 50 minutes to 1 hour. 
  6. Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then turn out onto the rack. Peel off the parchment, invert and cool completely on the rack, top-side up. 
  7. Let the sweet potato mixture cool for 10 minutes. Puree in a blender until smooth. (Use caution when blending hot liquids.) Press the puree through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl, then whisk in the remaining ½ tablespoon butter until smooth. Spread on top of the cooled cake.

Once Upon a Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Mase - Harlem World Music Album Reviews

Each Sunday, Pitchfork takes an in-depth look at a significant album from the past, and any record not in our archives is eligible. Today, we revisit the debut album from Mase, an icon of the shiny suit era who turned the Bad Boy throne into a recliner.
Mase floats skyward wearing golden goggles and a shiny suit that looks like a tricked-out air traffic control vest. His rise through an ultramodern wind tunnel feels remarkably symbolic as Kelly Price lip-syncs Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out” on a monitor behind him. He’s wearing the same diamond-studded Jesus piece the Notorious B.I.G. had on when he was murdered. As he swaggers through the futuristic Hype Williams-directed music video for 1997’s “Mo Money, Mo Problems,” histories are being rewritten in real-time; the nature of rap as an epic retail commodity is growing. It is a eulogy and a coronation all at once. It is Bad Boy rising from the ashes.
