Chris Makes Molten Caramel Cake | From the Test Kitchen | Bon Appétit

  • Published on Mar 13, 2019
  • Join Chris Morocco in the Bon Appétit Test Kitchen as he makes molten caramel cake. Everybody has heard of molten chocolate cake, so we thought we’d try to create a caramel version, with a toffee-ish tender cake encasing a runny dulce de leche center.

    What's up with the spanish monopoly on milk candy? Our doce de leite is just as good if not better. Yeah, probably better.

    This was so lovely and relaxing. Chris has this calming nature that makes me want to kick back and relax with a cup or coffee while I watch this. I might actually try and make this.

    The thing is Claire show is about upgrading she has to make it better , so it makes sense if she had to do her own peanut butter, where Chris is making a normal recipe not upgraded or anything like that I personally love both of them 😘

    Chris, I love you man, but please can you work on your "like"s? In this video, you said "like" 47 times. Just rewatch your video from 4:03 to 4:17 and you said "like" 4 times. The "you know"s are almost as bad. I want to watch your videos because you give great advice, but they're almost unwatchable with your verbal ticks. I have them too, so let us soldier through them, like, together. :)

    I like the cake, but the comment at 10.26 went South with too much innuendo.

    For the record, as a Latina, dulce de leche is NOT entirely the same thing as caramel. Dulce de Leche is just boiled condensed milk, whereas caramel is a soft candy made of sugar that sometimes has butter or heavy cream added to it. You can easily make it at home by just literally boiling the whole can of condensed milk (like.... even in the can, making a kind of double boiler).
