  1. Hey! You missed out a part of your post! :P

  2. What a pretty cake (to both photos)!

  3. Wow! Your dulce de leche and pork curry look so luscious! I would have happily shared both your main meal and the dessert ;-)
    Yes, dulce de leche is awesome, I agree. Do you know you can make something very similar with condensed milk? You buy a can of condensed milk (sweetened!), you put it into a big pan with lots of water (it must cover the can) and you cook the can for two hours, checking if it is well covered with water (otherwise it can explode). You let it cool down in the water, then open it and you have the caramel very close to dulce de leche.

  4. I used to buy an Argentinian dulce de leche in the States and eat it with a spoon. SO GOOD.

  5. ping: thanks, I noticed that also this morning:) It happens...

    yummychunklet: thanks, one tasted delicious, thats I know

    Sissi: unfortunately I finished both:) I have tasted the condensed milk version but never made it myself. I prefer to make from scratch, its nicer and much cheaper:) The condensed milk version - I think you can also cook it in a pan with bit of cream/butter, it will be faster than cooking in a can, and less risk of explosions:)

    Hannah: it is addictive

  6. Mr. Three-Cookies, the good side of the condensed milk method is you don't have to stir it and it never sticks ;-) (the problem I had when I tried making from the scratch).

  7. Sissi: good point, the cook from scratch method does require regular stirring, and towards the end almost non-stop stirring.

    Marina: thank you, and welcome back:)

  8. I am loving the look of that Jewish cake. I don't think I've ever had gooseberries. I'd love to try it.
    *kisses* HH

  9. That cake looks awesome! We have a similar recipe but without the chocolate on top. Yum

  10. gooseberries - i ve never heard of that before, interesting ;D
