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.

    Dulce the leche (doce de leite in portuguese) is like a really common ans traditional thing in brazil, so seeing chris comparing it to caramel made me confuse in the beggining but then i was like.... wow doce de leite is really just a like a milk caramel..... and now i'm blown out

    Bon Appétit, please include metric measurements in your recipes. Cup volumes are one thing, but like in Chris' chocolate chip cookie recipe, what's a stick of butter?? (Yea yea, google, blabla, but im more of a one screenshot, minimum scroll cook). Pleeeease?

    Dulce literally means sweet, but is not candy, but can be used to address candy, jam and marmalade is sweet and can called dulce de (insert a fruit here in spanish). This is true for Argentina, however for other countries Dulce means sweet and can be used to describe anything sweet tasting but is not a part of the name of the dessert or spread, in Ecuador Dulce de Leche is called Manjar (man har would be the correct pronunciation), Arequipe (Ah-re-key-pe where every e sounds like the e in Emerald)
    if in your area you dont have access to Dulce de Leche and dont want to make it from scratch you can take a can of sweetened condensed milk, peel the label, and simmer it for about 120 minutes, water covering the can about 5cm (2in) top of it completely submerged.
    you can use a pressure cooker and do the same but it will take 20 minutes. (this may be dangerous).
    When it is done do not open the cans until they are cooled down ortherwise you may get a jet of hot boiling dulce de leche scalding you.

    Great idea and its ell executed! Dulce De Leche is so underrated, it actually is very versatile! You should do an episode on how to have it at hope with the least amount of effort (regardless of how long it actually takes), please.

    Caramel and Dulce De Leche aren’t the same things. You seem to imply that they are. Also learn to pronounce “dulce” you don’t seem to have a problem with the French names which are a lot harder to pronounce.
