Hi Aunty Yochana,

Ohhh your cheesecake looks so divine. I love cheesecakes. May I know how do you make Dulce de Leche? This cake must be very sweet too with caramel...yum yum. Can you please share this recipe? Thank you so much. Have a lovely Happy Easter.

Best regards,

Hi Michelle,

Initially I made my own "Dulce De Leche" by double boiling my tin of unopened condense milk for many many hours till it turns caramel in colour but now in Singapore Cold Storage you can buy store-bought Dulce de Leche.

No this cheesecake is not too sweet for me. I have sweet tooth tho..

Thank you so much Aunty Yochana for your prompt reply and your generosity for your knowledge. However, how do I know when is the condensed milk has turned caramel colour since the tin is unopened? And will I get the same result if I bake the condensed milk in the oven till it turns caramel in colour?

Best regards,

Aunty Yochana said...

Hi Michelle

If you boil it for at least 5 hours it will turn caramel but the longer you boil, the more brown it will get.

Hi aunty,

I'm Leen. I would like to know if I can replace Smuckers Sundae Syrup with golden syrup. Lastly, any difference if dark chocolate is used instead of white chocolate.
Thank you. Have a nice day!
