Dominican Cake



Dominican Cake Recipe


4 Sticks Of salted Butter

Here's a picture of the Dominican vanilla that I use Delifruit brand is the one I use the most with this Vanilla you will have the best tasting Cake and frosting (Suspiro) I use the black vanilla for the cake batter but if you don't have the black one you can use the clear one if you like also use the clear one for the Suspiro if you don't have or find the Delifruit brand when I run out I use the CariDom brand so I recommend you use CariDom Vanilla as a second choice.

Merry Christmas! Your recipe sounds very original and I'm giving it a shot. Tonight I'm baking it for our family gathering. However, I did not see the recipe for the icing. The icing completes this wonderful recipe. Are you willing to share it? I hope so. Thank you and may you have a prosperous New Year.
Blessings.

Hello jennifer you need to shift the flour then measure it if you don't shift the flour then you might be putting more four then requested or you might have over mixed the cake batter when addind the flour that what will make it thick too one of those two things you might have done wrong that's what I think went wrong.

nati said...

Hi I could really use some help. I tried to make the frosting and a came out watery. I think I must of done the melting of the sugar and water worng. Do I heat the sugar first then put the water or put the sugar and water at the same time? When I did it, it never changed color or truned into syrup. How do I do this right please help me.

Licious Secrets said...

Hello nati yes you must have done it wrong the sugar syrup needs to be a thick syrup u needed to cook it longer try leaving it cook more I hope this helped.
