A piece of cake





While in Argentina, I had the pleasure of making a birthday cake for a friend´s friend. Although extremely simple, I wanted to record it here. For posterity.

Serves a lot!

chocolate cake made with brownie recipe x 2 using self-raising flour or plain flour and baking powder 

dulce de leche (shop-bought like in this case or home-made)  500g

crushed meringues, as needed

fresh strawberries, as needed

Make brownie dough as usual and bake the cake. Cover with a generous layer of dulce de leche (I used the whole jar) cover with crushed meringues and finish the top with fresh strawberries. To give it a snowy effect, pulverize some meringues and dust the top of the cake using a small sieve.

Note: This will also work extremely well using plain flour and doing little squares as when making brownies.
