Servings 12 servings
3 batches of Eggless Crepes from this recipe (20 - 25 crepes)
Dulce de Leche Buttercream:
- 1 cup (230 gr) unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 cups (360 gr) confectioners' sugar, sifted
- 1 cup Dulce de Leche
- 1 teaspoon (5 ml) vanilla extract
- 3 tablespoons (45 ml) heavy whipping cream
To Assemble and Decorate (optional)
- 1 can (13.4 oz) Dulce de Leche La Lechera for filling
- 1 cup sliced almonds (optional)
Dulce de Leche Buttercream:
In a large mixing bowl of an electric mixer cream butter until fluffy, about 5 -8 minutes. Add in salt. Add 1 cup of confectioners' sugar; beat until well combine.
Slowly add in the remaining confectioners' sugar and continue creaming until well blended.
Add Dulce de Leche La Lechera, vanilla, and 3 tablespoons of heavy cream. Blend on low speed until moistened. If necessary, add 1 more tablespoon of heavy cream until you reach the desired consistency. Continue beating at high speed until frosting is smooth and fluffy.
Lay 1 crepe on a cake plate. Add 1/4 cup of Dulce de Leche buttercream in the center of the crepe. Use a knife to spread this cream thinly across the crepe; leaving outer 1/2 inch. Top with another crepe. Spread a thin layer of Dulce de Leche La Lechera (this is optional). Cover with another crepe and repeat, alternating between buttercream and Dulce de Leche, to make a stack, ending with Dulce de Leche buttercream. NOTE: If you don't want to alternate with Dulce de leche simply use buttercream.
Loosely cover it and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, overnight is better.
Before serving, sprinkle the top with sliced almonds, if desired.
STORE: Store leftover cake in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
FREEZE: You can make the crepe layers well in advance. Crepes can be stored and frozen for up to 2 months. To freeze, just stack them between layers of wax or parchment paper and wrap them tightly with plastics. When you are ready to assemble the cake, just thaw the crepes and built the cake with your favorite filling.
If you find difficult spreading the Dulce de Leche La Lechera over the crepes just put it in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for 10 seconds to loosen it up, then stir.
