  1. Mix the caramel ingredients together in a large heavy bottomed saucepan, bring to the boil and boil for about 8-10 minutes, swirl the pan gently every now and then. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Once cool begin to bake the cake.
  2. Preheat the oven to 180c/350f and grease two 6″ cake tins and line the base with baking paper.
  3. Sift together the 2 cups of plain flour, the soy flour, baking powder and the salt. I used a separate bowl, and whisk together the sugar, caramel, oil and soy.
  4. Combine the wet and the dry ingredients, then fold in the chopped nuts.
  5. Scoop into the cake tins, level out the batter then bake for 1 hour. Cool completely on a wire rack before frosting.
  6. To make the frosting simply beat the frosting ingredients together.
  7. To finish the cake drizzle with leftover caramel and top with the chopped pecans.
