Few years ago, I posted one of my favourite cakes.....Torta Mil Hojas de Dulce de Leche....
Experimenting with new dough, I found one that is faster to make, easier, the dough is more flaky, it has less ingredients, and the taste is even better!!
I like to put some pastry cream in between; thus, the result is not overly sweet, and is a pleasure to the palate
Torta Mil Hojas
300 g of pastry flour
200 g cold butter (small pieces)
140 g of whole milk
1 jar of dulce de leche
Pastry cream my recipe is :
1 cup of milk, 1 egg, 1 and 1/2teaspoon of cornstarch, 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence and 1 tablespoon of sugar.
Mix the flour and butter until you have a sandy texture. Add the milk slowly until you have a dough that is not sticky. I used about 140 ml of milk, but in your case can be less milk.
Divide it in 6 pieces. Freeze them for 30 minutes. With a rolling pin, roll it until they are really flat (2 mm). Place them on a parchment paper in the fridge.
In the meantime, make your pastry cream as you wish.
Preheat the oven at 350F. I have 3 levels in my oven, and I use the 3 levels at the same time. Place the dough on a oven proof tray. Bake them for 12 minutes or until golden brown. Fill it immediately, and leave it in the fridge for 12 hours before eating it. ENJOY!

I love lentils, and I can eat them daily. I made this recipe on Thursday, and we ate it for a couple of days.
Lentils with spinach and spices
400 grams of red lentils washed and clean
3 tablespoons of rice
150 grams of spinach clean and chopped
1/2 onion (diced)
spices at your taste: turmeric, cumin, ginger, chili powder, oregano, dill, garlic, salt, cinnamon, berbere, whatever you want to add.
In a pressure cook, add the olive oil and sautee the onion until is translucent. Add all the spices you want. I add 1/4 teaspoon of each. Add the spinach and sautee until it is cooked. Add the lentils and rice, add water until it covers the lentils, and a little bit more. Cook it in a pressure cooker for 17 minutes. Let it rest under this pressure for 1 hour. Enjoy!
Can't resist dulce de leche! The torte looks incredible, and the lentil rice seems like a perfectly healthy and comforting side dish. Have a wonderful week ahead!ReplyDelete
