I have a weakness for dulce de leche, the super creamy milk caramel with origins in Latin America. I love it in just about any dessert from cheesecake to cookies to ice cream. That's why when I read Scott Conant's recipe for dulce de leche cake in a recent Food & Wine, it was only natural that I make it.
This cake does not disappoint: it's moist, light, fluffy, delicious, flavorful — basically every adjective you can think of to describe a cake! The filling is an easy-to-make dulce de leche, and the frosting is somewhere between meringue and marshmallow. If you're in need of a dessert that will take your guests' breath away, make this cake. It's a real stunner! Want the recipe? Read more.
