How to Make Dulce de Leche
Servings: 1 1/2 cups
Author: Epicurious.com
  • 4 cups (32oz/1000ml) milk
  • 1 ¼ cups ((10oz/300g) sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Stir together milk and sugar in a heavy bottomed saucepan.
  2. 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. (skim away any foam that forms during simmering)
  3. After about an hour, stir more often as milk caramelizes, to avoid burning.
  4. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla extract.
  5. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Makes about 1 1/2 cups.
