I hate wasting food. It’s one of my biggest pet peeves. So when I found myself with three quarters of a can of sweetened condensed milk just sitting in the fridge with no real purpose, I decided to transform it into the oh-so-delicious Dulce de Leche.
It is extremely simple to do. You just need to bake the sweetened condensed milk in a dish, surrounded by water at 425 degrees for 1-1.5 hours. It will become aromatic and a darker colour, and can be enjoyed in pretty much any way, including by the spoonful!
I decided I wanted to make a pan of blondies, and figured I would incorporate this caramel-like substance. It worked out so beautifully, and I would highly recommend you give it a try!
Eggless, Coffee and Dulce de Leche Blondies
- 1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vinegar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup strong coffee
- 1/3 cup of oil
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
- Dulce de Leche – as much as you want!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Mix all dry ingredients together, except chocolate chips
Mix all wet ingredients together, except Dulce de Leche
Combine wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Add in the chocolate chips.
Put the thick batter into a greased pan. I used a 9×9. Drizzle the Dulce de Leche on top and use a spoon or toothpick to zig zag it into the batter.
Bake for approximately 25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to cool for several minutes. Serve warm or cooled, with a drizzle of the remaining Dulce de Leche, if you have some left!
This is a fantastic treat and a great way to use up any extra sweetened condensed milk.
Be sure to let me know if you give this a try, and thanks for stopping by!
