Dulce de Leche

Makes: Approx 400g

Time: 2 - 3 hours and loads of patience


- 1litre Full fat milk

- 250g Granulated sugar

- 1/4 tsp Bicarbonate of soda

- 2 tsp Vanilla extract

- pinch of salt


1 Place milk, sugar and soda in a large heavy bottomed saucepan, place on the heat and bring to a gentle simmer, it will look a bit frothy but don't worry that's absolutely fine.

2 Allow to simmer for approximately 2 hours stirring occasionally. As the milk reduces you will need to stir it more frequently as it may start to catch on the bottom of the pan

3 When it is the consistency you want stir in the vanilla and salt and taste. You may want to add more, I'll leave that up to your tastebuds.

4 Place in a sterilized jar and keep in the fridge.

I'm not sure how long it will keep, it doesn't last long in my house. Delicious in a chocolate and caramel tart, drizzled over ice cream or just eaten by the spoonful.

NOTE You can use any sugar but I use granulated as its cheap and does the job.
