Soft Caramel Sauce (Dulce De Leche)

Dulce De Leche is a thick caramel flavoured sauce, which can be used in different recipes or topped in ice creams, desserts etc. It can be used as a spread too... It's your choice...enjoy as it is or include in any of your desserts to make it more yummier.....


4 cups Milk
2 cup Sugar
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract


  • Boil milk in a big heavy bottomed pan. When it is boiled, add sugar, vanilla extract and baking soda. Stir well until the sugar is dissolved.
  • Once boiled, keep it in very low flame for 1 hour. Wash down the sides of the pan using a pastry brush dipped in water.
  • After every 15 minutes, scoop out the froth.
  • When it is about an hour, you can see that the mixture turns to a thick deep brown colour caramel. Make sure that it doesn't burn in the bottom of the pan.
  • Immediately pour the caramel through a sieve, so that you can avoid any bits of caramel which might have caught on the bottom of the pan.
  • Pour the caramel into a bowl and let it cool. It thickens after it cools. 
  • Store it in an airtight container or in a zip lock for later use.
  • Pour this on ice creams or any desserts and Enjoy !!!

  1. I liked my caramel sauce to be slightly thin and not too thick. Its up to you, you can decide the consistency of the sauce.
  2. The caramel tends to thicken after it is removed from the fire. So keep an eye on the consistency you need the caramel to be.

Thanks for visiting
Happy Cooking!!
