Try this Estrel Copycat Caramel Cake Pinoy recipe. I love Chef Nikkos Caramel Cake version as much as I love the original version. 

Have you ever tasted Estrel’s Caramel Cake? The chiffon cake was fluffy, the buttercream frosting was light and creamy, wonderfully sweet but not overwhelmingly so. And the gooey caramel was finger-licking good! Just thinking about it makes my heart flutter.

So this Saturday, I wanted to attend the Artisan Bread Baking Class at The Maya Kitchen in Makati but ended up going there late. Luckily,there’s another baking class that day.

So I attended Chef Nikko’s Demo Class for Nikko’s Baking Studio. Chef Nikko Buendia is the wonder chef from Nikko’s Baking Studio, a cooking school and a hole in the wall restaurant (also in Makati) that serves delicious artisan dishes like yummy breakfasts Spam and Eggs, Adobo Flakes, and Arroz ala Cubana or even pasta! Yummy!

Me and Chef Nikko

She’s a fun baking teacher with little kitchen anecdotes here and there, which, I won’t divulge haha! This day, we studied Japanese Cheesecake (which deserves a post on its own here) and the Caramel Cake otherwise known as the Dulce de Leche Cake. It’s an Estrel Cake Copycat, to better satisfy our cravings when we can’t go to Estrels!

What’s the difference between a caramel cake and our very own yema cake exactly? Its almost the same and has similar baking steps. But the caramel cake is more involved and has buttercream frosting and butter filling.
