Dulce de Leche Update

I tried making this in the pressure worked great!

I didn't realize my pressure cooker was looking so shabby. It is 30 yrs. old. Hubby welded a new handle on it a few yrs ago.
Put your can of sweetened condensed milk in the cooker and cover with water. I used
Western Family brand this time. It was just as good as Eagle Brand.
Put the lid on and bring to pressure. After you put the cap on then turn the heat down
to medium. Time it for 30 min. Let the pressure cooker cool off before opening it. DON"T put water on it to cool it off. Your can could explode!

This is much quicker than boiling it for 3 hrs. Dan says it's safer to do this method because the pressure outside the can is the same as inside the can.
I made this delicious gluten free apple cake and put the warm caramel on top of it like a frosting.

Heidi said she put hers on apple pie. The marriage of apples and carmel is a match made in heaven.
Use your favorite cake recipe....add some chopped apples...bake. Mine took 40 min.

I made this! BUt, it didn't turn out as dark as yours did...I am not sure why. It still tastes good though, but it doesn't seem as firm. Maybe I didn't cook it long enough or on a high enough heat setting. Hmmmmm....
