Loved the comments dude :D :D :D  We have the added advantage of being able to make our dulce de leche in our TMX's folks so this should be an easy one for us.  Don't know what they meant by it exploding ??? ???  If Bron wasn't on a diet she would go for this big time ;) ;) ;)   Thanks Mama bel - it is always interesting to see variations of our favourite recipes, in this case 2 of my favourite recipes.   I could still use Amanda's brownie recipe and dob the dulce de lelche on that. Oh yes please.

The 'exploding' referred to boiling tins of condensed milk.  We don't need to do that though, we can use yummy whole milk and organic sugar.  I'm loving avoiding tins!

I made 2 batches of this ages ago and both worked perfectly.  We used them in brownies, in ice-cream and on cookies.  And a lot got eaten from a spoon I'm sure! :)

Anyway, yesterday and today I've tried to make a batch of this dulce de leche using the exact same ingredients as I did before, basket on top, same settings (Varoma, speed 5 etc) and it has totally bubbled up and run EVERYWHERE.  I mean sugary milk under my stove, down my walls, on my cook books... ARGH.  Today's batch I left out the bi-carb thinking to add it later (wondering if I used too much yesterday) but sure enough, after 10 mins or so it just frothed out everywhere.  So, so messy - and not at all good for the TMX I'm sure!

I can't work out what's different, and why this would happen.  Does anyone else make this recipe of ducle de leche?  I use 1L raw cow's milk (Jersey), 130g raw sugar, 120g rapadura sugar, 200g cream, 1/2 tsp bicarb (but no bicarb today, to check if that's it)...  It's the adaptation I did right from the first time, and not so different to Bron's original recipe.

Help??

Not sure - shouldn't be the bicarb - it helps stop acids forming and splitting the milk, but shouldn't make it bubble up.  Maybe this batch of milk is higher in SNF - the proteins that form the faom on milk. 

One suggestion would be to put the TMX in a baking tray to catch all the overflow and maybe just go for 100oC for the first 15 - 20 minutes.

chocdoc and andiesenji may be of more help?

What an awful mess to clean up.  :(
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

I have only made this one and certainly didn't have your trouble mama_bel.  I used low fat milk though, wonder if that makes a difference.

Yesterday I attempted to make fudge in the  TM.  The result is a lovely caramel that hasn't set firm.  Wondering what to do with it I came across the recipe on the previous page for the Dulce de Leche brownies.  So today I converted the recipe and made them using my caramel in place of the dulce de leche.  They have turned out lovely, and wonderful with a cup of coffee.

The rest of the caramel has been put into a container in the fridge as I can imagine it would be so nice lightly warmed and drizzled over good vanilla ice cream.  :)

Nice to see nothing went to waste JulieO - Bron would be proud of you  :D :D :D  She always turns disasters into a meal and encourages us to do so too.

Julie, YUMMMMMMMMM!  I love your photos!

Yes, it was my worst kitchen mess ever - sugary milk all under the stove - I had to move the stove out 1.5m (as far as the wiring let me) and move the bench and it took an hour of cleaning for my daughter and I and created a load of washing of its own!

Okay, so my milk is more foamy than it used to be, a different stage of my cow's lactation stage - when I milk her (by hand, daily) there's a thick foam on top like a cappucino!  And it's quite high in fat right now, with plenty of fresh green grass in the paddocks...

I am scared to do it again... :(  Twice in 2 days and you would not believe the mess...  And it cant' be good for tmx to have sticky milk all over it.  And it's cockroach season and I so, so don't want to encourage any of THOSE.

Sigh.

JulieO - they look great - have you seen Tenina's recipe for fudge http://tenina.com/2009/04/get-fudging/ ?  May give you some ideas.

Yes thankyou Thermomixer, I did see it and thought it was a long cooking time compared with stove top recipes I'd seen.  Maybe one day I'll give it a go....   :)

Hi Judydawn - when you whip it i.e. add oxygin to it, it thickens.inkha
