Dulce de Leche
My workplace introduced a series of US cakes to the dessert line up recently. There are 7 cakes, and there was one which particularly caught my attention – Dulce de Leche Cheesecake.
After looking up Dulce de Leche on the internet (I love the internet and I can’t live without it), it sounded like just the thing I would love. I’m a great fan of caramel, and homemade Dulce de Leche seemed too easy to resist.
Now, I saw many which had the instructions “Boil a can of condensed milk”. I’m a chicken. I’ve got no guts to do that, however much assured that it will not explode. Nuh uh. I went for the method of boiling half a litre of milk with some sugar and a pinch of baking soda until I got nice, carmelised colour.
I used this to top Dorie Greenspan’s Classic Tall and Creamy Cheesecake which I had made earlier on in the day (forgot about photos). Pretty damn tasty imo.
