Peach and Dulce de Leche Cake with Meringues and Cream
In Uruguay, the original version of this cake is known as chajá – layers of light, fluffy sponge soaked in peach syrup, whipped cream, dulce de leche, peach slices and crumbled meringue. My version incorporates the dulce de leche and fresh peaches into an olive oil cake – serve it warm out of the oven, with crème fraîche or lightly whipped cream alongside.
|dulce de leche (you can use Nestlé caramel, sold next to the condensed milk)|
|under- to just-ripe peaches, thinly sliced|
|dulce de leche (this is the remaining caramel in the tin)|
|crushed store-bought meringues|
|crème fraîche or lightly whipped cream|
