How to make dulce de leche (caramelised condensed milk) in the Instant Pot
Instant Pot Dulce de Leche

Thick and luscious caramelised condensed milk, made in a fraction of the time (and a lot safer) than boiling cans of it on the stove for hours! 

: 1271 kcal
  • 1 can condensed milk (397g approx)
  1. Simply scrape all the condensed milk into a heatproof glass jar (such as my Luminarc ones or a Kilner jar). Cover tightly with foil. 

  2. Place the trivet in the Inner Pot, then place the jar of condensed milk on top. Pour in cold water until it reaches 1 inch below the top of the jar. Put the lid on and select Manual, adjusting time to 45 minutes. Allow a NPR when finished cooking. 

  3. When pressure has released, very carefully remove the jar of dulce de leche - be careful as it will be boiling hot sugar! Do not be tempted to taste it or stick your finger in until it is cold! Beat well with a spoon to get rid of any air bubbles or graininess and leave to cool. 

Recipe Notes

This will keep in the fridge for a couple of days but if you want to store it longterm, then you would need to follow a "canning" method to prevent spoilage. 

You can cook up to 3 jars at a time but I do wonder how many home bakers would need this many at once, given the short fridge life! #nojudgement lol ;)
