10.Allow to cool for about 20 minutes in the pan and then invert the cake onto a wire rack.
11.Once cooled, cut and serve with caramel sauce drizzled on top. Store leftover cake in the refrigerator.

Notes

  1. For the caramel sauce, place the can of condensed milk, in a pot filled with water. Simmer for 2 ½ hours making sure that the water is bubbling but not boiling vigorously. Check that the can is always covered with water during the whole boiling time. Add more water if needed. When the cooking process is done, remove can from hot water and allow cooling before opening. You can prepare it earlier, store it in a dark cool place and use it when needed!! It doesn’t have to be refrigerated.
  2. In the recipe I prefered tentoura instead of any other liqueur because this one especially is full of cinnamon and clove aromas, perfectly matched with apples and walnuts. In any case you can use cognac or vanilla extract.
