When I baked the Brooklyn Blackout Cake I didn’t have enough chocolate cake for the crumb decoration. So I made a whole new batch and had a couple of leftover layers. My youngest son kept snacking on it and has been asking for the same cake since. The right occasion came a couple of days ago. He was going to attend a party at a friend’s house, but I didn’t have the time or ingredients to bake a Brooklyn Blackout Cake. Though, I found a different recipe for which I could use the dulce de leche I had purchased a few weeks prior. I modified the original Dulce de Leche Chocolate Mini Cakes recipe: I used the chocolate cake for the Brooklyn Blackout Cake as layers, filled it with dulce de leche and salt flakes, and frosted it with whipped cream flavored with dulce de leche. The pictures don’t give it enough credit – the day was gloomy and the light awful – but this cake was absolutely delicious, quick to make, and it was devoured by my son and his friends.
