Dulce De Leche Pudding

Hubby’s aunt (Elemma, as we call her) is a wonderful cook.. Everytime we visit her, I would be curious to see her new dessert preparation… 🙂 ..Once we had a new pudding and I asked her what the ingredient was. She said ‘Condensed milk cooked in pressure cooker’. At first I thought she was pulling my leg, but later found out it was true!!! And I used to call it ‘puzhungiya condensed milk pudding’ 🙂 (steamed condensed milk ) ..  After I started blogging, found out there was a technical name for it – Dulce De Leche (hmmm.. sounds more stylish … :))..

The first time I tried the pudding it was way too sweet.. And I hadn’t tried to make it again for a long time.. Recently I thought to try it again by cutting down the sweetness and this time it was a success.. Had made this one during our friends’ visit and yes, it was a hit. My friend Azna, who is an expert cook, has given me the green signal to mention in the blog that she loved the pudding 🙂

So here goes my version of dulce de leche pudding…

Recipe Source


  • For the First Layer
    • Ladyfinger biscuits – 1 pkt (around 15 no.) * You can use Marie Biscuits also
    • Water – 1 cup
    • Instant coffee powder – 3 tsp

    For the Second Layer

    • Condensed Milk – 1 tin
    • Milk – 3 cup + ½ cup for cornflour mixture
    • Powdered sugar – ¾ cup
    • Cornflour – ½ cup
    • Nestle cream – 1 tin
    • Sliced Almonds – 2-3 tsp
    • Vanilla essence – a few drops

    For the Third Layer

    • Whipping cream – 1 sachet
    • Milk – ½ cup
    • Vanilla essence – a few drops


Layer 1

  1. Dissolve the instant coffee powder in water
  2. Dip the ladyfinger biscuits in the coffee mixture one by one and arrange on a pudding dish  .(Do not soak the ladyfinger biscuits, else they will be too soggy. If you are using Marie biscuits , you can add a few tsp of sugar to the coffee mixture).
  3. Keep it the fridge while you prepare the second layer.

Layer 2.

  1. In a pressure cooker ,place  the condensed milk and fill water till the can is immersed completely.
  2. Close the cooker and cook on medium flame with the weight on. After the first whistle, reduce the flame to low and cook for 45 minutes .
  3. Allow the cooker to cool and then open and take out the can. After the can is cooled well , open it. Voila, the condensed milk has turned to a toffee like semi solid mixture .This is the Dulce de leche…
  4. In a thick bottom pan, mix together the dulce de leche, 3 cups milk, powdered sugar and nestle cream. Heat this on a medium flame and when it starts to boil , add the cornflour dissolved in ½ cup milk.
  5. Stir well till you get a thick mixture. Remove from flame , add the sliced almonds and a few drops of vanilla essence.
  6. Pour this mixture over the biscuit layer. Keep it back to the fridge and allow it to set for atleast 2 hours.

Layer 3

  1. Using an egg beater ,beat whipping cream powder , milk and vanilla essence till soft peaks form.
  2. Spread this over the pudding and cool once for atleast 2 hours.
