There are a few changes you can make. First, you can use more or less vanilla in the cake depending on your liking. I find a half a teaspoon is, however.

We use a spring form pan to make it simply because it is easy to get out. You can use the pan of you choice. Just make sure you coat it with baking or melted butter so it will come out easily. It does not hurt to line the bottom with parchment paper, as well.

When the cake has cooled, for presentation purposes, I always trim the top so it is flat, but you can use it as is if you like. Be sure to poke lots of holes to allow the dulce de leche to soak right into the cake.

You can let it set in the fridge for a couple of hours but overnight is the best.
