Indulgent Chocolate Cake with Agrarian Kitchen Dulce du Leche

This Easter we celebrated our friend Rose’s 30th birthday at her lodge in the central Tasmanian highlands. It was a very relaxed weekend, a bit of drinking, puzzle-doing, Easter egg eating, and a lot of chats around the fire. Sam caught a 2 pound brown trout and Rose’s husband Bill cooked us a fantastic Hāngi. Oh yeah and we had snow!

To celebrate the birthday I made my standard chocolate cake (see the recipe here), but this time around made it that little bit more indulgent….well it was Easter, by adding in a layer of the Agrarian Kitchen’s dulce du leche purchased from their stall at the Mona Market. This stuff is liquid gold and is made from their own goats milk. It’s beautifully rich. I’m hooked! Unfortunately I don’t think they sell it very often and as their run at the MONA market is done it might be quite a while before I get my hands on more….however I have read instructions for making my own. One day perhaps.

    Lovely! So interesting to see a dulce de leche recipe using goat’s milk. i adree with your comment about being liquid gold. I was born in argentina and there dulce de leche is a staple ingredient. Used in so many sweets…from alfajores (traditional biscuits), cakes, tarts, in chocolates, as a spread on bread and crepes and my favourite ice cream! When i make it, i cook it for at least 2.5 – 3 hours using cow’s milk. Any chance they export to Singapore?…my chances are very slim.
