After a weekend of experimenting with some recipes (and failing mightily), my sister suggested that I try this Chocolate Dulce de Leche Flan Cake from David Lebovitz (his book Ready for Dessert also has some great recipes). I have to say it turned out wonderfully and much better than my attempted Goat Cheese Cake for diabetics. Yeah, the nutritionist and Endocrinologist would cringe at the sight of me making and eating this, but it was really, really tasty. It tasted great after it had cooled down to room temperature, but I found it even better after letting it sit in the refrigerator for a day and serving it cold. The cake layer stayed moist and the flan and dulce de leche seemed to taste much more vibrant (if that is a term to describe flavors) when cold.
I think I’ll have to add this recipe to the list of recipes I have on my site here in the next few days.
