This dessert had always been a staple at every Slavic home and it’s a must at Christmas! These can last for a week in refrigerator and you never get tired of eating them. Our family, just like any other Slavic family love dulce de leche filled desserts, such as this cake, Peach Pastries and Oreshki.

These wafers are hard to find, but I was able to find them for you on Amazon, click here. They are pricier than in store, but if you have any European store, they will have them there for sure. We have an Asian market in our area, and most of their products are the same as you’d find in any European store plus more. Therefore, we get these wafers along with all the other goodies from them and not the actual European store.

Ukrainian Dulce De Leche Waffle Cake Ingredients:

  • 2 packages plain wafers (9 layers, 9” diameter)
  • 2 (14 oz) cans dulce de leche
  • 1 stick unsalted butter (softened)

How to Make Ukrainian Dulce de Leche Waffle Cake:

In a medium bowl, combine 2 (14 oz) cans dulce de leche and 1 stick unsalted softened butter. Beat on high speed until smooth, about 3 mins. Spread cream on wafers, making sure to cover the edges. Cover only 1 side of each wafer layer and keep stacking until you have 5 layers. Place cake under a cutting board with a pot of water on top. Place plastic food wrap between each 5-layer cake to keep the dulce de leche from getting onto exterior side of each cake (you don’t want it messy). Let is sit under the press for an hour. Slice it up and enjoy or wrap each 5-layer cake separately into plastic food wrap and refrigerate. These taste better cold!

    I would like to make this for some Ukrainian refugees but the only waffles available in my home town are those in a packet which have a sweet filling. Would they be a good substitute? I could probably split them in two and thenadd the filling from the recipe

      Hi! You need wafers without filling for this recipe. If you type ‘veselka wafers’ into Amazon, there are few listings that pop up with plain wafers. Many readers buy off Amazon who have no access to it in local European markets.

    The easiest dessert! I had no idea I could find these waffles at my local Asian store. I went and got 10 packs and enjoyed these over the holidays. These are addicting. Thanks Olga, I’m so happy I found your blog. You’re my new favorite now 🙂

    We don’t have any European stores around us so I ordered from Amazon. I don’t regret paying more than you would in store for the waffles because this dessert is so easy and soooo good.
