Dulce de Leche has always been part of my life, I remember when i was a little girl my mother making alfajores and pionono (similar to a jelly roll, but instead of the jelly filled with dulce de leche). I just loved it! I remember my mother boiling the cans of condense milk to cook them in to dulce de leche..I used to think it was a long process.
One of my favorite cakes my mother used to make was a Dulce de Leche Cake, it was a vanilla cake filled with dulce de leche and dulce de leche icing. I hope you enjoy the recipe.
