Dulce de Leche corazón

Aug 15, 2019

こんにちは,여보세요, Hello!, Hola!,

How are you?. I hope that everything is well and your week is going peaceful.

So here I am back in the south...I have to say, that even though we're in winter back here, the weather has been very nice :).

One of the things that I like the most here if we talk about food and sweetly delicious things, is the Dulce de Leche. You don't eat it all the time because it's too sweet but it's a great companion when you bake deliciousness. If you want to try something different, below you'll find the recipe :)


1.    Classic method:

·         4 cups of milk

·         1 1/4 cups sugar

·         1/4 teaspoon baking soda

·         1 teaspoon vanilla

2.    Sweetened condensed milk method:

·         1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk


1.    Classic method:

Stir together 4 cups milk, 1 1/4 cups sugar, and 1/4 teaspoon baking soda in a 3- to 4-quart heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer uncovered, stirring occasionally, until caramelized and thickened, about 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours. (After about an hour, stir more often as the  milk caramelizes, to avoid burning.) Stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla. Transfer to a bowl to cool.
Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

2.    Sweetened condensed milk method:

Heat oven to 425°F with rack in middle. Pour the contents of 1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk into a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate and cover tightly with foil. Set the plate in a roasting pan and add enough hot water to the pan to reach halfway up the pie plate. Bake the milk in the middle of the oven 45 minutes. Check water level and add additional, if necessary, then continue to bake 45 minutes more, or until milk is thick and brown. Remove the pie plate from the water bath and cool, uncovered.
Makes about 1 1/4 cups.

My thought after this sweetness...good things take time :)

I hope your day is as sweet as Dulce de Leche!
