Dulce de Leche-come on,say it with me -dool-say deh lay-chay,sounds cool no?Let me tell you,it would be hard to remember what it is called once you taste it.I mean,who would want to learn how to pronounce or spell this when it is right in front of you and all you have to do is get a spoon to start tasting it??As Purple Foodie says here,it truly is Holy Yum!!Many a times I have planned to make this at home but in the end,I develop cold feet,what with the stories of can bursting and all that.More than the cleaning up job,what worried me most was the wastage of one full can of sweet nectar-good ol' condensed milk!!
Some time back,my Vanni got me a jar of this wonder and I have been looking for THE recipe to use up my own can of dulce de leche.First recipe which cropped up was Banoffee Pie then this sinful Brownie from Purple Foodie.But as always,all of it remained my plans and did not materialize into baked goodies.
I decided to bake a Bundt Cake.Why Bundt??Coz today is National [International!] Bundt day and I too like Big Bundts and have been following the Food Librarians posts like never before.Some serious Bundt lover she is,30 Bundts in 30 days..commendable!!
From complaining to confusing-I have been looking for a Bundt pan of my own since a long time and when I got it--I have not one or two but four Bundt pans now and I am confused which one to choose!!The recipe is the same as this one,I just replaced the condensed milk with dulce de leche.A li'l bit too sweet for a cake but tasty nevertheless!!
Following this method,I poured half the batter into the pan and then spooned in some dulce de leche like a ring and then poured the rest of the batter and smoothened the top with a spatula.This method creates a tunnel of dulce de leche in the middle of the cake..I slightly overbaked the cake,so the tunnel is not clearly seen.
Insert a toothpick at the center to test if the cake is done.
