Dulce de Leche is a scrumptious dairy treat. It is basically like a creamy caramel sauce and can be eaten out of the jar – it’s that good. I use it often in Shavuot recipes or as an extra treat for Shalosh Seudas on long Shabbos days in the summer. This Dulce de Leche cake is a great way to use it.
1-½ cups sugar
12 tablespoons butter
2 cups flour
1-½ teaspoons baking powder
Pinch of salt
2 cups dulce de leche, at room temperature, separated
1 cup whipped pareve cream for topping or garnish
Preheat oven to 325. Grease and flour a Bundt pan. Using a standing mixer, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together. Alternating with the dry ingredients, add 1 cup of the dulce de leche to the butter mixture, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.
Pour the batter into prepared pan and bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the cake comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes and then unmold.
Warm the second cup of dulce de leche. Drizzle it over the Bundt cake. Serve with pareve whipped cream.
