I am curious if anyone has made this type of cake. I had never heard of it until someone brought it to a pot luck, it was store bought. It was a vanilla sheet cake torted, with what I thought was baked Filo dough sheets. And a cream in between the layer of sheets. It was delicious, but I just don't know how to recreate myself and I've tried searching for information online with no luck. I was wondering if someone has heard of it or has a recipe that I might be able to try out, I would very much appreciate it.Thank you.

I heard about this cake but I haven't try it yet I know you put the mil hojas and for filling use the recipe for Crema Pastelera I don't know if you knoe what is Crema Pastelera is made it with milk, egg yolks, vanillia and sugar. the only thing that I need to figure at is if you bake the mil hojas with or without the crema pastelera. I know that Smart and Final has the mil hojas ready to put in the oven so i don't know if you bake them and after put the crema pastelera. I need to find out too how to make it if you know before me please pm and let me know .Thank you.

Mil hojas is made with Puff Pastry sheets and "Dulce de Leche", you can find it in many bakeries here in PUerto Rico...
