Chiffon with Dulce De Leche Whipped Cream and Blueberries


Layers of soft sour cream chiffon cake nestle between spread of stabilized whipped cream flavoured with rich ducle de leche and top with fresh blueberries. Vanilla buttercream would be a great substitute for whipped cream.

Dulce De Leche Whipped Cream

  • 3 disc 10-inch Sour cream chiffon cake (without cranberries)
  • 400 g Blueberries, rinsed and dried
  • 2 tbsp Apricot jam
  • 1/2 tbsp Water
  • White chocolate curls or mint leaves to garnish
  • 450 ml Heavy cream, chilled
  • 120 g Dulce de leche, chilled
  • 4 sheet Leaf gelatin

  1. Soak the gelatine sheets in cold water for 5 minutes to soften. Remove the gelatine from the water, squeeze it between fingers to remove any excess water. Melt the squeezed out gelatine in a microwave on high power about 10 seconds.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the heavy cream with the dulce de leche. Beat the cream until slightly thick, then slowly add in the dissolved gelatin and beat until the cream holds soft peaks.
  3. Place one cake layer, cut side up, on a round cardboard. Spread 1/3 of whipped cream over cake.Repeat procedure twice. Smooth the top of the cake with the flat edge of your spatula. Hold a decorating comb on the side of the cake and run around the cake to form ridges.
  4. Arrange the blueberries on the top. Heat the apricot jam and water in a microwave until melted. Strain the jam through a fine strainer to remove any fruit lumps. Gently brush on the blueberries. Garnish with white chocolate curls or mint leaves.
