Individual chocolate cakes with dulce de leche and fleur de sel

A simple dessert that is so  easy to make.  With the exception of the dulce de leche, the rest of the ingredients are  always on hand in the pantry.

I prepared the  dulce de leche the day before using a can of condensed milk, letting it simmer for about three hours in hot water.

I only made half a recipe since there aren’t too many taste testers around lately, and as delicious as this dessert is, I can take about two spoonfuls of chocolate at a time.


The combination of the sweet caramel flavor and the touch a sea salt mixed with the chocolate is such a delightful flavor.

I love the way it turned out,  a warm individual dessert that can be enjoyed plain  or perhaps add a bit of cream or a dollop of ice cream on the side.IMG_1259

  1. Ro, I love it when Tricia gets to look on Facebook to see what you have made in CTBF’s and then reserves her share. Quite positive she thought about that little chocolate cake all day long. I thought this was pretty darn tasty but, like you, a spoonful or two with vanilla ice cream was enough. I am just not a chocolate lover. I think it took me three days to finish one of the 4-oz ramekins but I enjoyed each spoonful.


  2. Gorgeous! And I’m with Mary about when Tricia sees what you’ve been making. 🙂 I also agree about how rich this dessert is. I halved the recipe and then we ate it over 2-3 nights because it was too rich to eat all at once. Phew!
