This recipe is an amazing authentic Chilean cake also known as “Torta de Mil Hojas” or “Thousand Layers Cake.” I made this for my Chilean husband’s birthday and he was very impressed with the results. I rolled each layer out as thin as possible then I cut out the layers by using a 9” round cake pan as a template so all my layers were uniform. Make sure you only cook the layers until they are just lightly brown, if you wait too long they will dry out too much and taste burnt. My oven isn’t large at all so I could only cook 2 layers at a time. It took a loooonnng time to make everything and put it all together; the est cook time of 1 hour is way off. If I included the cooking time for the sweetened condensed milk, the whole cake took me about 5 hours to put together, but it was totally worth it. Also, the longer the cake sits, the more the caramel penetrates the layers so the better it tastes!
