My Dulce de Leche . . .

After my debacle with my first dulce de leche, I sucked it up and made it the way I've read and seen people do it. I really had three choices: (1) submerge an unopened can of condense milk in water and boil for 3 hours, keep replenishing the pot as the water boils away. (2) using a pressure cooker, submerge an unopened can of condense milk in water and boil for 30 mins. keep replenishing the pot as the water boils away. (3) the oven method --- David Lebovitz has posted an amazing indtruction how to do it. Guess which I chose??? Of course, I chose the easiest and most practical. Choice (1) isn't really that cool will me because for one thing I'm NOT gonna used up our gas tank for 3 hours just to make dulce de leche, my mom would kave killed me! Since gas tanks nowadays are so much more expensive than let's say a month ago. Choice (3) well let's say I'm thinking of the electric bill so this method is a no go for me. Choice (2) which I find very much doable because thankfully I have a pressure cooker...err... correction my mom has one :) It takes the least amount of time and seems like such an easy process so ... Choice (2) it is.

Got so excited with my newly made dulce de leche, I decised to make it into a brownie. I used a regular brownie recipe and swirl in the dulce de leche. Didn't turn out as good as I would have liked it its tough and dry, I didn't like it at all. I think it's because my dulce de leche is a bit too watery, I need to thicken it a bit more. there's always next time I guess ....
