Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • ½ cup dulce de leche (store bought or homemade)
  • ½ can (14oz) evaporated milk
  • ½ can (12 oz) condensed milk
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • ⅛ tsp cinnamon powder
  • Sugar, if required
  1. Preheat oven to 160 degree C.
  2. In a bowl, beat the eggs with a whisk till it becomes slightly pale.
  3. Add the evaporated-condensed milks and cinnamon powder and mix thoroughly.
  4. Check for sweetness and add sugar if necessary. Since the topping is DDL, I didn't add any sugar at all.
  5. Wash and dry 4 ramekins. Coat the bottom of each ramekin lavishly with the DDL till everything you have is finished.
  6. Pour the beaten mixture equally into the ramekins. Cover with aluminium foil and poke a hole on top.
  7. Take a large oven-proof pan, fill with 1 inch warm water and place the ramekins into it.
  8. Push the tray into your oven and bake for almost 1 hour till done. It will be done when you poke a cake tester/ toothpick and it comes out clean.
  9. Once done, take out the ramekins, allow to cool to room temperature and refrigerate for a few hours until well set.
  10. For serving, run a knife on the edges of the ramekins and slowly dump onto your plate. Gobble it down!!!
