This Cheesecake is rich and creamy and absolutely delicious! You will love every bite with so many textures buttery crust, smooth caramel filling with a crunch of almond brittles.
I love cheesecakes, and this is my favorite as it has a rich caramel flavor of dulce de leche.
How to make Dulce de Leche ?
Dulce de leche is nothing but cooked condensed milk. It has a beautiful nutty color and wonderful flavor.
I would recommend preparing it the night before so that it has enough time to cool down before you use it. I made dulce de leche in a pressure cooker. First, you need to remove the label from the can and place it in the pressure cooker and cover it with water. It needs to be wholly covered with water during the entire time of its cooking. Close the cooker and keep it on high flame until the first whistle and then reduce the flame and cook for another 40 more minutes. Let it cool completely and whisk to smooth out and get rid of any lumps. Do NOT open the can while it is still warm, let it cool overnight.
All the steps are laid out to achieve this decadent dessert right in your kitchen 🙂

Beat in the dulce de leche, vanilla, and gelatine mixture. Finally, add the whipped cream and beat until the mixture is smooth. Do NOT overbeat it as the whipping cream might curdle. Pour the batter over the prepared crust cover with cling film and allow to set preferably overnight.
