turn condensed milk into caramel cake filling - Page 2

Please make sure that if you cook it in the can that you let it cool completely before you open it!

Also, Nestle sells Dulce de Leche in a can in some areas. It is usually next to the sweetened condensed milk cans. I've seen it at Walmart.

And make sure the can is always covered in water! I've tried the "boil the can" method a few times and it's turned out great.

Just to save same gas (or energy) you can do the "boil the can" method while you cook your beans.

Just take out the paper around the can and wash it very well. Place it into the pan, add your (already soaked overnight) beans, water, and cook under slow heat for around two hours, until the beans get nice and soft.

Take out the can and let it COOL DOWN BEFORE OPENNING.

Now get to the beans. Sautee some chopped onions, garlic, add your cooked beans, salt, pepper and chopped cilantro (if you have it).

Make some rice, maybe some chicken breast (or meat), a little salad (could be just some sliced tomatoes), and voila! Delicious and health meal on the table!

Now get your already cooled and refrigerated Dulce de Leche and serve as dessert. Delicious with sliced bananas! Your kids will say you that are the best!

Brigadeiro is a beloved candy which you can make with sweetened condensed milk. It's a must have in all kids birthday parties in Brazil. party.gif

If your afraid to boil the can as I am heres a good recipe.

Preheat the oven to 425° F (220° C).

Pour one can (400 gr/14 ounces) of sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk) into a glass pie plate or shallow baking dish. Stir in a few flecks of sea salt.

Set the pie plate within a larger pan, such as a roasting pan, and add hot water until it reaches halfway up the side of the pie plate.
Cover the pie plate snugly with aluminum foil and bake for 1 to 1¼ hours. (Check a few times during baking and add more water to the roasting pan as necessary).

Once the Dulce de Leche is nicely browned and caramelized, remove from the oven and let cool. Once cool, whisk until smooth.

Store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Warm gently in a warm water bath or microwave oven before using.

We can buy the Caramel. Don't you guys have it? Cooking condensed milk is the one thing I will not try. My mom did it, forget about it and I happened to be in the kitchen when it exploded. Both me and the kitchen were well covered in droplings op caramel.

Well I tried the method where you just pour the condensed milk into a pot and cook on medium to low heat until it thickens and have to say it's really quite nice.

I would call this a kids version of caramel if there's such a thing. It's not like making brown caramel with brown sugar and butter etc but it's more creamy with a milder caramel flavour. I like this and I don't really like brown caramel so it's a keeper in my opinion.

You could also have a bit of fun with it adding a few different things like chopped nuts or toffee pieces and different flavourings.

I don't know if you get the nestle milky bars over there but it's kind of like those all melted and sticky!

I have never tried the brownsugar thing, but i'm so glad we get pre-cooked condensedmilk so I don't have to try that. We also ad wipped cream and mashed bananas to it, make a lovely filling for eclairs or even pancakes. Otherwise it is just nice eating it with a spoon out of a tin icon_smile.gif

I buy it too. It's in the latin food section of nearly all grocery stores. It's by Nestle - dulce de leche - just make sure it's not straight condensed milk. I agree with ellistwins - I won't try it - when i was a kid our pressure cooker exploded b/c it wasn't venting properly. Not pretty. I don't want cans of condensed milk becoming flying projectiles. icon_sad.gif

My mom has boiled the cans of SCM. YUMMY! icon_eek.gif My question is, does the cake need to be refrigerated with this filling?

I do this all the time

I put the can in my crockpot (or many cans) cover with water, and put it on low and come back at the end of the day and have carmel.

I like to do it in batches and store them so I always have some for cake filling.
