Mmmmm, cake

Back in April I bookmarked Heidi Kenney's campfire cake because I had a feeling Sam would love it for his birthday. And when he said he wanted to have a camping sleepover party it was the only choice.

Oh my gosh, did I have fun making this cake. The center filling is dulce de leche, made by boiling an unopened can of sweetened condensed milk for three hours. There are no words- heavenly! Sam and I picked the chocolate cake recipe from one of my cookbooks; it was a not-quite flourless cake (only 1/4 c) and was just chocolaty and delicious. The fudge style frosting was also delicious.

Damn. Wish I had a slice now.

Me too. I love dulce de leche. We think that is a cool flame, too.

This is an awesome, awesome cake. I have saved this info for a cake this summer. Make sure the can you used doesn't have that plastic coating. I read on the Eagle Brand website how to make caramel outside the can.
