While my siblings and I may differ on what we consider to be our
favourite cakes, there’s a good chance we’ll all have a common ingredient – typically
smothered in between layers – and that is dulce de leche.
Dulce de leche has been a staple in our family and not limited to
dessert. We have it with pancakes, muffins, on toast, as a dip etc.
So it got me thinking, why not share the great family secret of the easiest
dulce de leche ever? Well, it’s not really a family secret, but it really is
super easy – perhaps too easy for a blog post, but here it goes.
Easy Dulce de Leche 1 can of sweetened condensed milk
Directions: - Remove the label from the can of condensed milk.
- Put the can into a large sauce pan. - Fill the pan with water until it is ¼ inch or so above the top of the can. - Put the pan on the stove (uncovered) and bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat. - Lower the heat to simmer and let the can simmer gently for about 1–2 1/2 hours. - As the water boils down, add more hot water so that the water level is maintained at ¼-inch above top of the can. - After 2 1/2 hours, drain water and remove can from pan with tongs or allow to cool to the touch. - Open can and enjoy!
The kiddies particularly love dulce de leche with apple slices, yummm. Have you ever tried this method? Are you a dulce de leche fan? For those interested, there is currently FREE S&H on all Craftberry Bush products via Society 6 until October 13th.
