Ukrainian Waffle Cake with Dulce de Leche

This Ukrainian waffle cake is so easy, you could make it simply by viewing the pictures. Easiest cake you'll ever make and it's quite fabulous!

This Ukrainian waffle cake is a cinch! It’s so easy, I bet you could make it simply by viewing the pictures. I just wish I could find a resource for the wafers online. Alas, I’ve only been able to find them at Russian or European stores. Poke around; you probably have one nearby.

However, these wafers are now sold in a California Walmart (near Rancho Cordova). I guess the Russian/Ukrainian population is so large, they even have a Russian section in Walmart. Lucky!! Once you buy the wafers; this will be the easiest cake you’ve ever made. And it’s quite fabulous!

Ingredients for  Waffle Cake (Вафельный торт):

1 package plain wafers – round or square (9 layers, 9-inch diameter)
1 (14oz) can cooked sweetened condensed milk a.k.a. Dulce de leche
1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 tsp lemon juice

Ukrainian Waffle Cake

How to Make Ukrainian Waffle Cake:

2. Spread cream on the wafers, making sure to reach the edges. Don’t be concerned with filling each square or you will have too much frosting on the cake. Just put enough to have the layers stick. You may make 2 skinny cakes or 1 tall one. They do stack nicely when they aren’t as tall.

3. Place cake under a heavy cutting board or make a press using a cutting board with a bowl of water on top. Let it sit under the press at least 2 hours. Then, slice it up (Ukrainian style) and make sure you grab a slice. They go quickly!!

    My mother-in-law does intervals of dulche de leche and farmers cheese. It really cuts down on the sweetness and makes it creamy. My only problem is finding farmers cheese in Texas! Reply

    I have been dating my boyfriend for almost 5 years, and he is a russian/ukranian.

    His Babushka makes THE BEST WAFFLE CAKE but she doesn’t speak English so here I am lol

    She has a lot more dulche de leche and I think she chops up nuts to go in, peanuts usually.

    She also freezes it before serving, cold creamy, and delicious. Reply

    Hi Natasha this looks delicious. …I just made it but got little confused by going over the comments. Do you put cream on both sides of waffle or just one side and put a dry one on top? Thank you can’t wait to try it hope it won’t be too dry. Reply

      Hi Mariam, I just put cream on one side of the waffle and top with a dry one. Some folks like more cream and you can add more if desired. After you let it sit under a press and absorb the cream, it won’t be dry 🙂 Enjoy! Reply

    Hello Natasha. I like this cake too, but lately we found out that my family like this too. I want to share this recipe with you.I use cooked condensed milk, but i make white cream too. 1 pack of cream cheese, 2 sticks of butter, and a half of the can not cooked condensed milk: mix. Then you spread it over the wafers. 1-cooked condensed milk, 2-white cream. In all you will have 2 times white and 3 times with cooked condensed milk. After all just put in the freezer for couple hours. U will love this.Its like frozen cake. Try and enjoy. Reply

    Phooey on WalMart if you’re close to Rancho Cordova! Go to Koreana Plaza International Market in Rancho Cordova (about 3 blocks away from the local WalMart) to get the Russian/Ukrainian specialty items you want. If they don’t have it, ASK and they’ll go to work getting a supply of whatever you couldn’t find. If it sells, they’ll continue to stock it. That’s where I got my stock of wafers …. which I didn’t know what to do with untill I came across your post tonight while I was looking for some kind of filling using dulce de leche OR cornstarch-based something or other. How FUN to have turned up the “authentic” way to use the wafers! Reply

    This is my kids favorite cake, I make it with butter,dulce de leche and cool wip.
    I melt the butter mix with dulce de leche with mixer and add softened cool wip mix it in with a spoon gets very fluffy. When I spread it on waffles I fill in most squares sticks together well and I cut it right away because it gets soft later and harder to cut. Ready to eat right away I guess cool wip makes it soft quickly very yummy!
    I will have to try adding lemon next time 🙂 Reply

    Thank you so much for the recipe. I made it for a birthday party this weekend and everyone loved it. By the way, do you have a Kiev cake recipe “Kievski tort”? Thanks again for your wonderful recipes. Reply

    Have you tried adding chopped walnuts in the cream? Reply

      I’m not sure if it would work since the cake absorbs some of the cream and needs to soften a little. Adding nuts might interfere with that. But I haven’t tried it. Reply

        This is my favorite cake!! I dont put butter either, but want to try the lemon. I actually add little pieces (crushed) nuts. They taste great. I crush them until they are very little, but not powder. I have done that many years and they do not interfere with the softness of the cake. I put a little more cream than in your photo-I make sure all holes are covered good. I have also tried adding a little bit of jam and it taste amazing! Reply

          oh, I mix the crushed walnuts in the cream and spread. I tried to sprinkle them on top of each cream layer, but the layers didnt stick. I found it sticks great if you simply add the walnuts to cream. Reply

    You can also add a little bit of cocoa to the milk with butter as well as a little bit of vanilla extract. Reply

      Sounds like you double everything 🙂 Lemon juice is nice; it doesn’t change the flavor a whole lot, but enhances it. Reply

      I have no idea. I’ll ask around. Have you checked ebay or amazon? Sheesh I don’t even know what it’s called?? Anyone else have any ideas about a waffle maker for wafers? Reply

      I looked on ebay and they range from $19.99 to $29.99 for one. I searched “Russian wafer mold” and got a few hits. It is like a plate mold used on the stove top. Reply
