DIY Dulce De Leche (Milk Caramel)

I can’t seem to get enough of food these days. Lately I’ve been spending most of my free time scouting the web for recipes to try my hands on. Like I always say, I you’re going to eat everyday, you might as well make it interesting.

 

Anyways, this time around, I got tired of searching for the perfect recipe and jumped right into making this delicious Dulce De Leche….also known as milk caramel.

Want to make yours? Here’s what I did:

 

Ingredients

  • Butter – 125g
  • Evaporated milk – 345g (that’s 3 115g cans)
  • Whipping cream – 500g
  • Granulated sugar – 3cups
  • Vanilla – I tablespoon
  • Pinch of salt

 

Method

  1. Pour the milk, cream and sugar into a pot on medium heat and stir continuously with a wooden spoon for about 30mins until the mixture thickens and turns brown
  2. Stir in the butter and pinch of salt. Continue stirring for about 15 mins.
  3. Take the pot off the heat and stir in the vanilla.
  4. Allow to cool and enjoy

NB:

  1. You have to mind the pot and keep stirring. Do not leave it unattended or it will burn
  2. Keep stirring for longer if you want a thicker consistency. I wanted mine to be a bit runny.
  3. I do not claim the idea as mine but decided to wing it after seeing so many variations. And it turned out so good ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Let me know if you try this recipe or if you know a better way of making this yummy dulce de leche.

 

Have fun guys and enjoy your weekend

 

Love,
