This homemade dulce de leche sauce is a great recipe to make and have on-hand when you're baking. Inspired by the traditional Argentinian brown sugar custard, this DIY version by good blogger Food 52 is super simple to make with a high-quality taste.

Dulce de leche can be found in a wide variety of baking treats from cupcakes to ice cream. The deliciously sweet caramel sauce is a great alternative to traditional caramel because it has much more of a creamy taste that is perfect for pastry fillings. To make some at home begin by boiling a quart of milk with sugar, salt, one vanilla bean and baking soda. The mixture needs to cook for two hours till it is reduced to a thick custard consistency. This homemade dulce de leche is guaranteed to taste just as good as one made in Argentina.
