Dulce De Leche Recipe "Dominican Style"


I love this dominican dulce de leche recipe, not only for its taste, but also for the memories it brings to my mind. I learned this recipe from Mami. She always cooked this dessert for me and my brothers (I have five, by the way) and we enjoyed it so much. She loves to cook traditional dominican food recipes.

Now I do the same with my husband and my two kids. I prepare this tasty dominican recipe for them and they love it. My Kiara and Jose will have beautiful family memories too when they grow up. It's amazing how we can build family traditions with just a few ingredients.

Enjoy my delicious dominican dulce de leche recipe.



  • 1/2 gallon of milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Sugar to taste
  • 1 or 2 cinnamon sticks



Pour the milk into a pot (I use stainless steel). Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add sugar and sweeten to taste (carefully, too sweet is not pleasant). When it begins to boil add the vanilla extract and the cinnamon sticks. Stir constantly.

This recipe has just few ingredients but take long to cook. So you have to be stirring constantly and always watching it to avoid any spilling over or sticking to the bottom of the pot. If you see those things happening, lower the heat a bit until the mixture boils but doesn't spill or stick.

Your dulce de leche recipe is ready when the mixture becomes thick and curd consistency. Remove from the heat and let cool down to room temperature. Refrigerate in small dessert cups or in a single glass container and serve chilled. It's so delicious!
