There are many ways you can go about making homemade dulce de leche from a can of condensed milk. One way of doing this is to pour the condensed milk in a glass baking dish, and bake at 350F, over a water bath, and covered with a piece of aluminum foil for about 2-3 hours, stirring in between, until I achieve my desired color and consistency. Choose a small baking dish if you are only baking the one can of condensed milk.
Alternatively, you can put the sealed can in a pressure cooker, filled with water a bit below capacity. Cook over medium-low heat for about 25 minutes. Let the can cool completely before opening it! This is very important! I leave my can submerged in the water until cool enough to be handled.
are the pans I used. If using different a different pan, you might need to make adjustments to the following directions. You are simply going to adjust the amount of mousse, or the amount of dulce de leche, and the size of your cake rounds according to the size of your pans.
*If you choose to make your own dulce de leche, you will have more than 1/4 cup, which is needed for the recipe. You can store the leftovers in your fridge for up to 15 days. I usually just end up baking different desserts with it, like cookies or something.
