i didn’t do sunday cake last week because i did a lot of baking for the 4th of july… so, we’ll just pretend that thursday cake was sunday cake. my grandma’s birthday is the 4th of july, she’s an amazing woman, the matriarch of our family. this cake is my toast to her.
i know i was happy with this cake because i had it for breakfast the next day. and maybe lunch too. don’t judge. you’ve seen dulce de leche a few times on the blog already… i think it’s totally worth the money. i’m not brave enough to make it on my own, something about boiling a can of condensed milk in a pot makes me cringe. i’m worried that the one time i try to do that, the can will explode everywhere… so i’m perfectly happy buying it from the store. this batch was courtesy of a friend who brought it back from argentina. winning.
i only made a few changes… i skipped the tunnel, added more dulce de leche to the batter, and used mexican vanilla extract.
a sweet dusting of powdered sugar. my absolute favorite.
