Learning About Latin Treats: Chaja
How about something tangy and sweet? Chaja is a peach meringue cake from Uruguay. It's a spongy sort of dessert that's layered with dulce de leche, cream, fresh peaches, and crumbled meringue. Sounds divine, right? Well that's because it is. There are different variations to making this cake - as like most recipes.
If you're interested in an easy recipe, here's one from Que Rica Vida.

What You'll Need:

For the peaches:
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 pack of 10 oz. Cascadian Farm™ Organic frozen sliced peaches
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
To assemble the dessert:
1/2 prepared Betty Crocker™ angel food cake mix
1/2 cup dulce de leche
2 cups chopped meringue

How To Make It:

1 - Melt the butter in a pan and add the sugar and cinnamon. Stir well. Add the frozen peaches and cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let cool and add the vanilla. Stir.
2 - Place one layer of cake in a rectangular 9x5 mold (loaf cake), moisten with the peach liquid, add a layer of caramel, then a layer of peaches, and sprinkle on 1/3 of the chopped meringues, then another layer of can and more peach liquid.
3- Serve with chopped merengue and sprinkle with cinnamon powder.
