Caramel filling recipe
- 1 tin condensed milk
Place the tin of condensed milk in a medium saucepan, unopened on its side.
Cover the tin with cold water and place on a high heat, bringing it to the boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 2 hours.
Check frequently to make sure the tin is covered in water and that the water does not boil away. Top up water and return to a simmer.
Remove from heat and cool thoroughly before opeing the tin.
- I always boil at least 2-3 tins at a time because it uses the same amount of energy and it is great to have on hand for emergency desserts.
- A great way to use this is to fill a sweet shortcrust pastry shell or small tart cases with it as a take-along dessert. You can serve them topped with chocolate ganache or whipped cream.
