Project Pastry Queen – Peach Queen Cake with Dulce de Leche Frosting
I took a short break from Project Pastry Queen while we moved and got settled but Iâ€™m back and ready to bake! Iâ€™m coming back just in time for the Peach Queen Cake with Dulce de Leche Frosting which was chosen by Shawnda.
Soâ€¦ peaches and dulce de leche? Not exactly two things Iâ€™d combine normally but Iâ€™m so glad I didnâ€™t chicken out. It works somehow. Like really works. Like I could eat 5 of these cupcakes at once. They kind of reminded me of Millionaireâ€™s Cake which I now want to make after looking up recipes!
Shawnda will have the recipe for you but I thought Iâ€™d share the changes I made. I did cupcakes instead of a 3 layer cake â€“ I halved the recipe (ended up with 12 and enough batter for another 1 or 2) and baked them for about 25 minutes. I also used buttermilk instead of sour cream because thatâ€™s what I had on hand, and I doubled the vanilla. Because I wanted to.
For the dulce de leche, I used the crockpot method. All you do is put a can of sweetened condensed milk in your crockpot with enough water to cover it completely and then cook for about 8 hours. Itâ€™s like magic.
