Homemade Dulce de Leche

Some homemade dulce de leche recipes are made from actual ingredients like sugar and cream. This is actually a shortcut method that uses sweetened condensed milk, but it's more homemade than opening a jar of store-bought dulce de leche, so we'll go with it.

I first made dulce de leche years ago for these Tres Leches Coconut Cupcakes with Dulce de Leche Buttercream and was amazed by how a simple cooking technique could transform canned sweetened condensed milk into delectable caramel. I have since made it several times for different recipes and always have perfect results. I've seen some recipes that boil the unopened can or put it in the crockpot, but from what I've read neither is particularly safe, so I prefer this method. 

Stay tuned for my next post where I share the awesome recipe for which this dulce de leche was created!

Homemade Dulce de Leche

1 can sweetened condensed milk


Preheat the oven to 425F.

1. Pour 1 can of sweetened condensed milk into a glass pie plate or pyrex dish. and cover with foil.


2. Place dish in a larger roasting pan where it can sit flat.

3. Pour hot water into the roasting pan to a depth of about halfway up the pie plate/dish.


4. Place in oven and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes.


5. Remove from oven and let cool. Stir until smooth.
