I hasten to You with a recipe for very tasty simple cakes that will undoubtedly decorate the holiday table. This recipe will help out if You don't have time to bake a time-consuming cake or dessert. Everything is done simply and quickly, and the taste will not leave anyone indifferent... Very tasty shortbread dough, soft caramel with nuts and chocolate will give you minutes of true pleasure.
Everything is done very simply and quickly. For the dough, quickly mix the softened butter with powdered sugar with a silicone spatula.
Sift the flour and vanilla into the resulting mass. All quickly mix with a spatula. Hands do not need to interfere, so that the oil does not melt from the heat of the hands. Get this dough.
Line a small form with parchment paper and spread the dough evenly with a spatula. I have a form of 21×21 cm.
Bake in a preheated 180 degree oven for 15-20 minutes until Golden. Cool the cake slightly for 10-15 minutes.
For the caramel layer, melt the butter in a thick-walled pan. There also pour condensed milk. Condensed milk must be taken of good quality.
Bring the condensed milk and oil to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. As soon as the condensed milk boils, mark and cook for 5 minutes.
Dry the nuts in the oven and peel them.
Mix the boiled condensed milk with the nuts and pour it over the shortbread dough. Nuts can be taken any to taste. I have peanuts this time. You can make it without nuts, then it will just be soft caramel.
Bake in a preheated 180 degree oven for 10-15 minutes. The caramel should get a little Golden. If you bake caramel, it will not be soft, but on the contrary will become like nougat. Cool for 10-15 minutes.
For the glaze, melt the chocolate with butter in any convenient way. I melt the pulses in the microwave. Pour the chocolate over the caramel layer. Cool to stabilize the layers for at least 2 hours in the refrigerator.
Decorate according To your taste and desire! Cut into cakes with a sharp knife.
