Dulce de Leche Cake Roll

IMG_7632 (2)

The other day, I was thinking of making a cake roll. The problem was that, every time I make it, the cake roll cracked so bad and broke completely 😦

So I was talking with my mom, and she said that I have to roll the cake while it is still warm, and let it cool rolled. Then spread the filling of my choice.

Even though I was scared, I gave it a try. I made the cake just like my mom said. And it turned out great!

Well, it had a little crack on the top. But it was so little that you could barely see it.
So I was so happy and just wanted to share the recipe with you 🙂 !!!

And for those of you who love cake rolls, you will love this recipe with dulce de leche (milk caramel) filling. The cake is super soft and I used orange extract so it had a little citrus in it. This cake roll is so popular in Brazil. You can find it in almost the whole country!

Enjoy the recipe!!!
