Dulce de Leche Sauce Recipe for Crepes
Hi! My name is Mari and I'm a professional baker and the owner of Mari's Cakes, an American-Dominican bakery in the Dominican Republic. When I'm not cooking, I like reading, gardening, and spending time with my family and pets.
For an easy dessert, I recommend topping sweet crepes with my delicious Dulce De Leche sauce. Popular in Latin American countries, Dulce De Leche is a milk-based sauce that tastes very much like caramel. Making it at home is very easy. All you need for a good helping is one can of sweetened, condensed milk and a pressure cooker.
Put one can of sweetened condensed milk in a pressure cooker and fill it with water until it covers the can. Close the pressure cooker and leave on medium heat for 30 minutes for an average 15-oz can. Turn off the heat after the cooking time, let it rest, and open the can later, when it has cooled. To hasten the cooling process, you may place it in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours.
If the sauce is too thick to pour, you can dilute it with some milk, blend and bring to a boil until it reaches your desired consistency. One can will provide more than enough sauce for many crepes!
