I've got condensed milk..... is it worth making it with just the condensed milk or do I really have to boil it first??

Hi nondomesticgoddess,
Dulce de Leche is a soft spreadable bought toffee in a jar... you can get the same effect by boiling a (sealed) tin can of condensed milk for 2.5hrs (you MUST keep the can covered with water when boiling otherwise you'll explode the can - messy and very dangerous), remove the can from the water and leave to cool completely before opening. I use this in all sorts of things... banoffee pie, heated with double cream to make a creamy toffee sauce for ice cream, etc. hope this helps!

This is a fab recipe, really delicious and great as xmas presents for neighbours.
The two measurements given for cream are the size of pots that cream tends to be sold in (may be in metric its half a pint and a pint or something). So they're saying you'll need a 142ml and a 284ml pot of cream. Its all single cream. Dulce de leche is a spanish sort of runny toffee sold in a jar. Think you can get it pretty easily in uk supermarkets. In spain its sold in the UHT milk aisle but assuming in uk will be in 'speciality products' or something.

Can someone confirm if the cream used for this recipe is single cream only? I only ask because there are two different measurements in the recipe list for cream. If it was just one type of cream then surely only one measurement should be listed right? Can anyone clarify? Thanks.

Hi, would someone please tell me what Dulce de Leche is as I have never heard of it before and I don't think we have it in New Zealand - is it a type of Baileys Irish?
