Toast makes a surprisingly stylish candy snack, particularly in case you’re smearing it with frangipane (aka bostock), or brownie batter. I’m all the time in search of my subsequent toast to dazzle and delight, however I concern I’ll have found the height of all of it. Immediately, I deliver you lazy dulce de leche toast, and it’s the very best toast I’ve ever had.
Dulce de leche is a milk caramel unfold constructed from slowly cooking sweetened condensed milk. It’s one ingredient, however the gradual, constant warmth modifications the sticky, runny, dairy right into a thick unfold, like softened butter. The colour modifications from creamy white to latte brown, and the alluring flavors of milk and sugar acquire complexity with toasted, malty notes. The one downside is dulce de leche takes a hell of a very long time to make (about two or three hours of cooking and one other hour of cooling), and there’s a small danger of the milk can exploding in case you do it unsuitable.
Lazy dulce de leche toast is for the impatient dulce de leche lovers on the market, like myself. It takes a mere 30 seconds to assemble, and three minutes to make. None of that cooking for hours, or worrying about exploding cans. The air fryer makes this snack comparatively lightning-fast, with little to no clear up.
Set the air fryer to 350°F on “air fry” mode to preheat. Pop a can of sweetened condensed milk, or pull out the leftovers you may have within the fridge. Unfold a pair tablespoons of the gooey stuff onto one facet of a slice of bread. I used the thick minimize brioche bread I had accessible, however any slice of bread will do. Put the milky bread into your air fryer, milk-side up, and let it cook dinner for 3 minutes. Be sure to set the timer as a result of this could change from caramelized to burnt in case you neglect about it. Take it out and luxuriate in your dulce de leche toast instantly.
Please be aware, this isn’t true dulce de leche (such issues occur while you’re lazy), but slicing corners actually has its advantages. You’ll discover as quickly as you are taking a chunk; the highest layer can have the advanced, caramelized, and butterscotch-esque taste of dulce de leche, with a layer of creamy sweetened condensed milk beneath. The mix of flavors–toasted meets creamy–is luxurious, nevertheless it’s the feel that wins all of the beans. In contrast to with actual dulce de leche, which retains its moisture, the sugars of the condensed milk uncovered to the circulating warmth of the air fryer caramelize and crisp on the perimeters, giving your toast a milk-candy prime, with a creamy underside. Against the bread’s plush inside, it offers the phantasm of a creamy, custard-like layer in the midst of the toast.
Lazy dulce de leche toast is an actual deal with. For a fittingly simple modification that tastes like banana sweet toast, add sliced banana to the bread and unfold the condensed milk excessive earlier than baking.
