Dulce de leche is a thick caramel like sauce that is prepared by slowly heating sweetened condensed milk. Literally translated it means "candy of milk". There are many different versions of this, depending on which region of the country you live in. A Mexican version called Cajeta is made from goats milk. Here I used the simplest method available which is pouring sweetened condensed milk into a small baking vessel and then placing this dish in a larger one filled halfway with water.
Keeping with this weeks theme of Cinco De Mayo, I purchased sweetened condensed milk for dessert for the first time. Frankly I was very surprised by my non sweets loving husband's reaction as he totally loved this. I can see how this ingredient could be good in other desserts as well; such as pie. This is the easiest 1 ingredient recipe I have ever done.
This recipe is adapted from Scarletta Bakes. com, who also resides here in sunny Phoenix Arizona.
1 14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
Preheat oven to 425F.
Pour sweetened condensed milk into ramekins. Cover tightly with aluminum foil.
Fill pan with hot water, cover tightly with foil and bake 60 to 90 minutes.
Beat with fork until smooth. Good over ice cream and drizzled over cake or brownies.

Mysavoryspoon was first started in 2010 as a way to journal recipes that I had collected from cookbooks, magazines, family and friends. Most everything was savory, using legumes and whole grains. Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.
