Dulce de Leche recipe

Dulce de Leche recipe

Dulce de leche, or sweet milk, is a popular dessert in Venezuela and in lots of other latin american countries. The flavor of our dulce de leche is special to me because it takes me back to my childhood; the best characteristic of this dessert is that it is too sweet, so with a little amount of it you will be satisfied, and will have less remorse because you have only tried a little.

Our dulce de leche is so easy to make that we want you to give it a try and prepare it. There are many ways of to make it but I will use my Auntie Teresa’s recipe.

For one batch of dulce de leche you’ll need:

  • 1/2 cup of Milk powder
  • 1 cup of water
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla
  • 1 lime
  • Prunes
  • Cloves

Blend the milk with the water, vanilla and the sugar. Then pour it into a saucepan and cook it on low. Squeeze the lime over the mixture and while it is cooking, do not stir it too much because you have to allow the milk to be separated by the acid from the lime.



Add the cloves, and the prunes when the milk starts boiling. Stir gently just to mix all the ingredients and then wait until the mixture turns solid.

Enjoy the sublime flavor of this dessert…
