    Miss Annie's Note:

    This recipe calls for Mexican cajeta (caramel topping). If you cannot find this in your supermarket, substitute Smucker's Caramel topping, however the Mexican cajeta has a richer flavor. This is very easy to make, and super good. Use it with your next Mexican Fiesta!!

      Excellent recipe, very YUMMY!. If you can't find Cajeta in the spanish section of your supermarket, look where the condensed milk is and they might have Dulce de Leche (La Lechera brand). If you still can't find dulce de leche all you need to do is get a can of condensed milk, remove label, put in a pot with enough boiling water that will cover it and cook for 3 hours. If you want do more than one can since it keeps well in the refigerator. This tastes much better than caramel. You can also use it on the middle of two shorbread cookies, cake fillings, fruit dipping or just with a spoon by itself. I made this cake twice, first time with caramel and second time with the condensed milk and it made a difference. Thank you for an awesome recipe

      As evryone has said.....OMG!!!! This was very easy to make and tastes amazing! I read the other reviews about possible overflow so I used 4 custard dishes (1 cup size) and prepared 4 small cakes before emptying the rest of the ingredients in the bunt pan. I let the 4 samll cakes cook with the large bunt in a very large disposable pan with the water bath. I took the 4 smaller cakes out at about 1 hour 15 minutes. I let the large cake cook for the remaining 45 minutes. They all came out absolutley picture perfect!!!! I also let the large cake cool for 30+ minutes before I plated it. I used my largst serving plate and still spilled cajeta in the sink. Oh well, I guess I have a good excuse to go and get a new "BIGGER" serving plate. Thanks bunches Miss Annie, this is definatley a 5 star recipe!!! I'm gonna fool around with the butter cake with cinnimon idea....MMMMMM Yummy!

      In Puerto Rico we call this FLANCOCHO. We use vanilla cake mix though. Also , we make our own caramel. Just cook 1 cup of sugar in a sauce pan and add a teaspoon of water until it starts to turn amber, poor this into the prepared pan and swirl around a bit, then add liquids. It's so good, my sis and I had it the last time we went out there and it was yummy!!!
