11 Delicious Latin American Desserts You Can Totally DIY

This huge dessert is commonly served in Chile and is a cake made from a multitude of layers. Sometimes called the “thousand layer cake,” it’s a towering creation (though not really 1,000 layers) that combines crispy layers of puff pastry with a gooey caramel and milky filling. The cake is then covered in frosting and served. Some people like to scatter the frosting with nuts for a great dose of added flavor and crunch.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups sifted flour
  • 250 grams/ 8 oz unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 3 egg yolk, room temperature
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon rum or pisco
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 3 cups of dulce de leche or caramel (available in Latin supermarkets, I like La Lechera brand sold in cans, usually right next to the condensed milk)
  • 2 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
