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

  • Published: 13 March 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.

      I stopped watching immediately as soon as I saw he wasn't making his own caramel but using store-bought. Bon appetit indeed.

        Chris, please try freezing the cake batter & dulce de leche in the ramekins and baking them from the freezer. I need something impressive to give to last minute guests and this looks perfect... if I can freeze & bake.

          Wish you'd shown us a bunch of canned products so we could see what's a good brand & what's not.

                            I live in *Nepal* and here we don't have *dulce de luche* . So video is useless.
                            You said the *dulce de luche* is close to what you made. So, *MAKE YOUR OWN CARAMEL DUDE!*

                                    Bon Appetit needs to diversify their staff. Do the only hire based on sexual preferences? Just saying....

                                              I feel like this could be adapted really well into a jam-filled cake, like a more decadent aebelskiver

                                                                                      Argentinian here! Chris, you should try to mix the dulce de leche with Filadelfia cream cheese and use it as a filing, you won't be disappointed with the taste!

                                                                                      I agree with whoever said that caramel and dulce de leche are not exactly the same as one has a water base and the other has a milk base.

                                                                                      Also to make homemade dulce de leche is not that easy or fast. You have use a lot of milk and sugar (1 litre of milk and 500 gr of sugar I think is the base recipe and it will get you only 250 gr of dulce de leche more or less) and it is sort of a reduced sauce kinda thing, you have to boil gently (so as not to burn the sugar!) and stir almost constantly until it is solidified into a whipped cream consistency.

                                                                                      • Rooi_tea
