Dulce de leche is a Caramelized milk in which sugar has been slowly cooked and producing a thick, creamy texture. This you can very easily make at home. A simple, safe way to make it is by baking or cooking condense milk on stove top, in a water bath .
This creamy yummy caramel is extremely versatile and can be used as a topping on cakes, ice creams, cupcakes, cookies or can be a dip for fruits and interesting thing is, i am using this in custard and kheer making.

  1. this is so easy to make dear 🙂 perfectly done dulce de leche 🙂 fantastic creamy texture 🙂

  2. Hi Ainy! I’ve been putting aside my plans to make banoffee pies for several months now only because I couldn’t find ready-made caramel and that making my own scares me. My neighbor would put an unopened can to boil in a water bath for 3 hours or so, but the idea that it may explode scares me. I like your idea of opening half the can and then covering it up with foil. Thanks!
