WAFER CAKE WITH ONLY 4 INGREDIENTS

The easiest cake imaginable with very simple materials and super flavor that will make every sweet tooth happy!

I make it with wafers instead of sponge cake, to make it even easier for anyone who wants to make a homemade cake, but don’t have the time (or patience) to make the sponge cake!

I also use condensed milk which boil for 3 hours in order to make Dulce de leche, which is caramelized milk! Because it is a process that lasts several hours, I prefer to make a lot of boxes together in a saucepan, to use whatever I want for a recipe and the rest I store in the refrigerator for the next recipe!

Ingredients

For the chocolate cream:
  • 450 gr heavy cream 35% fat, (whipped in the mixer in a thick form like yoghurt) 225 gr chocolate 50% -55% cocoa, cut into small pieces
For the Dulce de Leche:
  • 800 gr condensed milk (2 packages)
Set up the cake:
  • 500 gr wafers
  • 50 gr peanuts (optional for decoration)

Instructions

  • In a double boiler, melt the chocolate. Transfer it to another clean bowl, pour the cream and mix gently with a spoon or silicone spatula.
  • Simmer the sweetened milk for 3 hours with the box closed in a pot of water. (Or put it in a pressure cooker for only 1 hour).
  • Be careful,it should not boil too much so the box in the water won't shake.
  • The boxes should be covered with water throughout the course of boiling and if necessary add water.
  • After the end of the boil, remove them and leave them to cool before opening them.
Set up
  • In a rectangle hoop or Pyrex lay wafers at the base.
  • Spread evenly half of the dulce de leche and with the help of a spatula we straighten it. (Optionally sprinkle over pistachios)
  • Continue with the wafers and add the chocolate cream.
  • Continue with the remaining wafers and finally cover with dulce de leche.
  • Decorate with peanuts. (Optionally)
  • Leave the cake in the refrigerator for 5 hours.
