  • Electric Mixer

    Essential for beating the eggs, sugar, and butter to the perfect fluffiness. Make sure to clean the beaters well between the cake and cream stages.

  • 22cm (9 inch) Baking Pan

    The size guarantees even baking. Line it with parchment paper for easy removal.

    Ensures your flour and baking powder are well-incorporated and lump-free.

  • Wooden Skewer

    A handy tool to check if your cake is baked through without damaging it.

  • Piping Bag

    Helps in creating the perfect chocolate drizzle patterns on top. If you don't have one, a zip-lock bag with the corner snipped off works too.


Step 1

Preparing the Cake

Mix salt and sugar with the eggs and beat until fluffy (about 5-7 minutes).
Gradually sift in baking powder and flour into the mixture, folding gently from bottom to top.
Pour the batter into a 22cm (9 inch) baking pan and bake for 25 minutes at 180°C (350°F). Check for readiness with a wooden skewer.

Step 2

Making the Cream

Beat room temperature butter until it lightens.
Add caramelized condensed milk one spoonful at a time, beating until smooth.

Step 3

Assembling the Cake

Cut the cooled cake into three layers.
Soak the first layer with syrup, cover with cream, and sprinkle with crushed walnuts. Repeat for all layers.
Melt the chocolate bar with the milk. Use a piping bag to draw stripes and a skewer to create patterns.
Decorate the sides with crushed cookies. The cake is ready!

  • Why is my cake not rising properly?

    Ensure your baking powder is fresh and don't overmix the batter. Also, preheat your oven to the exact temperature.

  • How do I prevent my cake from sticking to the pan?

    Line your baking pan with parchment paper or grease it well with butter and a dusting of flour.

  • Can I make the cake layers in advance?

    Yes! Bake the layers, let them cool completely, then wrap them tightly in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 2 days.

  • How do I get smooth cream without lumps?

    Make sure your butter is at room temperature before beating it and add the caramelized condensed milk gradually, beating well between additions.

  • What's the best way to cut the cake into layers?

    Use a long serrated knife. Chilling the cake before slicing makes it easier to cut neatly.

  • Can I use dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate for the topping?

    Absolutely! Dark chocolate adds a rich, slightly less sweet flavor that pairs wonderfully with the caramel.
