Now that Independence Day has passed, long weekend is over and life goes back to normal… well at least for most if not for all:) We can all discuss and share our memories of hopefully great weekend! We spent amazing time at this gorgeous place on the lake, in Glen Spey, New York.  Kids did some fishing, swimming, collecting leaves, flowers and even a turtle.  They named her – Lily, but unfortunately she didn’t want to stay for too long and magically disappeared from her handmade house out of a cartoon box.

The weekend was great, and the fireworks on the lake shortly after the sunset were simply unforgettable.  Couldn’t resist and sharing some photos with all of you, it was the most beautiful Independence Day I ever had!

Kids also helped a lot around the house.  The place we stayed in had almost camping conditions and our food choices were somewhat limited, but yet the menu was still great.  One of the things kids did (almost on their own) was a Waffle Cake with Dulce de leche and Apple Jam.  Girls loved the idea of making this cake because it took only 15 minutes to prepare and can be enjoyed soon afterwards.  Sharing with all of you this simple and kids friendly cake recipe!

Ingredients:

1 Pack of multi colored Waffles
1 Can of Dulce de leche
1/2 Jar of Apple Jam (or any other Jam you have available)
Fresh Fruit or Nuts to decorate

How to make Waffle Cake with Dulce de leche and Apple Jam:

1.  Open your waffles package, be gentle so the sides wouldn’t chip and break. The waffles were purchased in Net Cost supermarket, which has a nice variety of very colorful ones, but I am sure other supermarkets sell something equal to these.

2.  Open 1 can of Dulce de leche and 1 Jar of Apple Jam (or any other jam you have available might also work).  I would just try to avoid very runny jams or the ones that have large thick pieces of fruit or seeds inside, as it would make it more difficult to layer the cake and waffles may break.

3.  Now you are ready to start making your cake.  Start with spreading Dulce de leche on the first layer of the cake.

4.  Followed by the layer of Apple Jam on the next waffle, which is placed on the top.  Plastic knife would do the job perfectly, but give kids a metal spoon for scooping the Jam and Dulce de leche out, especially if they were just taken from the fridge.

5.  Make sure the Jam and Dulce de leche is spread all around up to the edges evenly.   Might want to give your kids a helping hand to finish each layer once they tell to you that they are “Done”.

6.  Your cake is almost done.  Make sure to add the last top layer of Jam or Dulce de leche on the top layer if you want to add some fruits or nuts on the top of it to decorate.

7.   If you like it plain, don’t add any jam or Dulce de leche on the top layer.   It’s easier to eat, store and serve this way…we prepared both versions since girls liked it differently.  I find that most kids actually prefer it plain Dulce de leche in the middle and no toppings, but every kid is different so up to you to decide what works best.

8.  When the top layer is done and covered with Jam or  Dulce de leche, you can then decorate it with fresh fruit, shaved chocolate, nuts or what ever you prefer.  We only had some fruits available and decided to decorate our cake this way.

Your waffle cake is all ready!  Now all you need to do is to put in the refrigerator for few hours before you can enjoy it! I hope you and your kids also love this easy recipe.  Have you also tried other variations of this cake? Please share, would love to hear back from you!

Happy Independence Day!

  1. Natalie! Hi! I made the waffle tort as well on http://www.girlandthekitchen.com! Mine is a little different, as all Russian recipes tend to be :) But I guess that’s how our traditions stay in our family…
    Always nice to see Russian recipes on other people’s blogs! Happy and healthy New Year!
