Chocolate sponge with Dulce de leche layer cake

When I first read about this here I was too fascinated to try something with it. But the time it takes was the worrying thing and I was simply postponing to get a can of condensed milk. Yesterday I finally made a cake with this. What to say? Its all worth the effort and it tasted super delicious. I could lick the whole can but was waiting to try many more dishes šŸ˜‰

I boiled the can of condensed milk (do not open the can) in a large bowl with full water (make sure to drop the can only after the water starts boling). Boil for atleast 1 hour. All through the time the can should be immersed in water. Otherwise the can will explode. So please keep checking the water level often.

For the Chocolate Sponge :

Eggs – 3

All purpose flour – 1/2 cup

Sugar – 1/2 cup

Cocoa powder – 1/4 cup

I made the basic chocolate sponge. Beat the eggs till stiff peaks form. Add the sugar and fold gently. Swift the flour, cocoa powder.

Fold the flour mix in 1/3rds at a time and using a flat spoon making swirls like ‘8’ figure while folding. I divided the batter into small cup cake cups and baked them for 12 minutes.

Once the cake is cool I cut each one into 4 thin layers. Applied a teaspoon of Dulce de leche on each layer.

And this is my wonderful cutie layered cake ready for galloping!
