Decadent and delicious Molten Dulce de leche Cake oozing with caramel in the middle. Only 3 ingredients and minutes to make. Serve warm with ice cream.
  • unsalted butter (used to butter the ramekins)
  • 2½ tbsp. flour (more for ramekins)
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 large egg
  • 1⅔ c. dulce de leche
  • vanilla ice cream (if desired)
  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Butter and flour ramekins and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Using an electric mixer, beat egg yolks and egg on high speed in a medium bowl until doubled in volume and eggs hold a slight ribbon, which should take about 3½ minutes. Add dulce de leche and beat until well blended, then gradually add 2½ Tbsp. flour. Divide batter among ramekins.
  3. Transfer sheet to oven. Bake cakes until outsides are golden brown in color but the centers still jiggle, 12–14 minutes (I kept mine in for 13 minutes).
  4. Transfer sheet to a rack. Run a knife around edges of ramekins to loosen cakes; transfer to plates or shallow bowls. Serve hot with ice cream.
