Dulce de Leche Cake

This cake is another one that stems from my eastern European heritage. There are a lot of different versions of this recipe online and there are minor differences depending on where you’re from.

This can also be called a polish wafer cake recipe or a Russian dulce de leche cake (вафельный торт со сгущенкой).

If you’ve ever had those crispy waffle cookies from the store, you have an idea of how these will taste. But when you make this cake homemade, the filling and the flavors are more brilliant! They have a depth that you won’t find in pre-packaged desserts. You have to try and make some for yourself.

Where to Purchase Waffle Cake Sheets

The best thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to make the waffle cake sheets yourself. Most European grocery stores sell waffle cake sheets. They sell them in a wide variety of flavors and colors. So go ahead and mix and match and have fun with it!

What is Dulce de Leche Cake Filling?

Dulce de Leche cake filling is a combination just two ingredients, butter and dulce the leche. All you would need to do is whisk them together until everything is light and fluffy.

How Long Does Dulce de Leche Cake Last?

It’s best to keep the cake either refrigerated or in a freezer. If you refrigerate it, this cake will last up to 2 weeks. When freezing, just seal it completely in either a freezer-safe container or in a zippered freezer bag. It will last for 2-3 months in the freezer. Btw, frozen waffles taste like caramel ice cream, so darn good!
