Step 1: Cream butter and sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease the bottom and sides of a 8x8 baking pan with butter and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Tilt pan in a circle to lightly coat. Set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, Kosher Salt, and Supreme Saigon Cinnamon. Set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add butter, brown sugar, and 4 Tbsp. Salted Caramel Spice. Beat on medium speed for 2 to 3 min. until fluffy and lightened in color.

Step 2: Finish batter

With the mixer still running, add egg and Pure Madagascar Vanilla Extract. Mix until combined. Turn the mixer speed down to low and add ⅓ flour mixture, followed by ¼ cup heavy cream, another ⅓ flour mixture, water, and final ⅓ flour mixture. Mix until just combined.

Step 3: Bake and serve

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 27 to 30 min. until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Meanwhile, in a clean bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip remaining 1 cup heavy cream and 2 Tbsp. Salted Caramel Spice on medium-high speed for 2 to 3 min. until medium peaks form. Chill until ready to use. Top cooled cake with salted caramel whipped cream, sprinkle with Salted Caramel Spice, slice, and serve.
