Dulce de Leche Cakes recipe

Preparation Time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 12 minutes

Dulce de leche is a thick, rich toffee/caramel sauce - you can either buy it out of a tin or make it yourself. These lovely little cakes make the perfect pud - a but like a twist on a sticky toffee pudding.


  • 110g unsalted butter
  • 6 tbsp. dulce de leche
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 125g plain flour
  • 3 eggs


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and grease and flour 6 holes of a muffin tin.

  2. Melt the butter. Sift flour into a large bowl and stir in the butter and dulce de leche until fairly smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time then divide the batter between the 6 holes. Bake the cakes for 12 minutes or until just firm.

Serve with some extra dulce de leche spooned over the top, warmed very briefly in a pan. Recipe makes 6 cakes.
