Tarta de coco y dulce de leche
Step 1: Prepare the Dough
In a mixing bowl, combine 200g of flour with a pinch of salt. Add 100g of melted butter and crack in one egg. Mix by hand until a uniform dough forms. Refrigerate the dough for 20 minutes.
Step 2: Shape and Bake the Crust
Press the chilled dough into a tart pan, covering the entire surface evenly. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (350°F) for 5-7 minutes until lightly toasted. This step adds a delightful crunch to the crust.
Step 3: Spread the Dulce de Leche
Evenly spread 400g of dulce de leche over the pre-baked crust. Use a wet spoon to make spreading easier and prevent sticking.
Step 4: Create the Coconut Topping
In a bowl, mix 150g of grated coconut, 230g of sugar, and ground walnuts (if desired) with one beaten egg. The mixture should have a loose texture,but be solid enough to be spread over the dulce de leche layer.
Step 5: Bake to Perfection
Spread the coconut topping over the dulce de leche layer, ensuring it remains airy. Bake the cake at a moderate-low temperature for approximately 30 minutes, until golden brown. Allow it to cool before serving.
