Does anyone know a good recipe for a dulce de leche buttercream? I need something I can use under fondant-so no refrigeration, and crusting is preferable.
Hi... I tried this one and everyone loved it!!!
Thank you! So generous of you to share.
oh no, this page will not open for me. is there another link?
It opened for me, so I'll cut and paste the recipe:
2 sticks softened unsalted butter
4 cups sifted powdered sugar
1 can of Nestles Dulce De Leche
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
approx 1/4 cup heavy cream or milk
dash sea salt
cream 2 sticks of butter
slowly add 2 cups of the sifted powdered sugar
add vanilla and half of the cream/milk
mix till well incorporated
add half of the Dulce De Leche
mix till blended well
add remaining milk/cream
add the remaining Dulce De Leche
continue with the remaining 2 cups of sugar until you reach desired consistency.
Depending on your desired consistency you might use a little more or less of the sugar.
Mix on medium for about 4-5 minutes. Keep your eye on this as it mixes and do NOT over mix. I have had it turn grainy if I over mixed.
Frosts a 2 layer 9" cake
oh thank you so much!!!!!
Sounds so good but I can't find a CAN of Nestle Dulce De Leche any where all I can find is the stuff in a squeeze bottle like Hershey's syrup.
Do you think you can use caramel ice cream topping if it's thin or runny and not real thick?
I've gone to 2 supermarket places yesterday and finally found it, in a specialty type of supermarket. Here is a picture of it. One of the local supermarkets told me that if I had the actual name of the item, they would order it for me. This was at Stop & Shop. Hope this helps.
You can also use International Delight Dulce de Leche added to your regular BC recipe for a milder flavor.
