Taste Test: Sweetened Condensed Milk

Sweets Max Falkowitz 22 comments

On first glance, all those cans of sweetened condensed milk are pretty similar. How do these cans compare? Does the same brand taste different when packaged for different demographics? And is there one sweetened condensed milk to rule them all? We tasted six brands to find out. More

Dulces: Bocaditos de Corn Flakes y Leche Condensada (Corn Flake Clusters)

Sweets María del Mar Sacasa 10 comments

What we were there to get: one large box of Kellogg's Corn Flakes and one can of sweetened condensed milk. Someone sprinted to the living room to return the keys while someone else fetched a stool. Yet another would rattle and rummage for a large pot and a long-handled wooden stirring spoon. I would fill a bowl with water while baking sheets were set up in the dining room. This was a house of seven children, though some were too young to participate, and I loved the buzz of activity and sense that everyone had a task, much like Cinderella's mice. More

Dulces: Tres Leches de Coco (Coconut Tres Leches Cake)

Sweets María del Mar Sacasa Post a comment

Tres leches is a personal favorite, immortalized in my taste memory by my mother's recipe, here slightly modified to make room for a bit of tropical taste and texture. One of her signature desserts, it's a large fluffy sponge thirsting for a flood of the milky trifecta. Just when it seems there is much too much liquid, that the cake will drown, the cake slurps it up, gushing out only when prodded with a greedy fork. More

Tres leches is typically topped with mounds of whipped cream, but here, a toasted marshmallow cap with bits of bronzed and toasted coconut makes for a just as fitting match. More
