Dulce de leche Mixture
  1. Mix dulce de leche and mascarpone together in a bowl. Refrigerate until you are ready to use.
Cooking the panqueques
  1. Heat the cast iron skillet (if using) over medium heat. Add a little bit a clarified butter to the pan. Depending on the size of the pan you are using, add some panqueque mixture to the hot pan (I used about 1/4 cup for a small cast iron pan (about 8 inches). Give the pan a quick swirl so the mixture covers the pan nicely.
  2. Cook about 1-2 minutes on each side. Let cool on a plate
Assembling the cake
  1. When are the panqueques are cooked and cooled. Start layering them by spreading a heaping tablespoon of the dulce de leche mixture on one panqueque and adding another on top. On every other layer, add the sliced strawberries as well.
