The perfect Christmas dessert!
servings: 25 / preparation time: 1h30min
9 egg whites, beaten to firm snow
9 egg yolks
5 tbs sugar
5 tbs plain bread crumbs
1 tsp baking powder
½ cup chopped walnuts
Filling and Topping:
2 cans caramel/dulce de leite or 2 cans of caramel made from condensed milk
1 ½ cups chopped walnuts
1 – Beat egg yolks with the sugar until very light in color.

3 – Stop the mixer and stir gently, with a spoon, beaten egg whites, baking powder and ½ cup walnuts.
4 – Preheated the oven to 400°F. Pour the batter in a greased and floured baking sheet and bake for about 35-40 minutes (do the toothpick test to see if the dough is baked).
5 – Remove from oven and let cool. Remove the cake from the pan and cut crosswise. Fill with half the caramel and nuts.
6 – Place the other cake half on top, cover with remaining caramel and nuts. Serve chilled.
Tips and Options:
- To make caramel from condensed milk, place the can in the crockpot, fill it with water until it covers the can, turn the crockpot on low and set the timer for 6 to 8 hours. Turn off the crockpot. Remove can from crockpot and let it cool completely before open the can.
- If the caramel is too thick, mix 1 or 2 tbs heavy cream.
