Wow! This was delicious! And easy to make - tasted just like caramel.
This was a really good recipe, just a little too sweet for my tastebuds. Admittedly, I used skim milk and reduced the sugar to 1 cup (then again, I used brown sugar, so it was sweeter), 2 tsp of real vanilla extract. It took around 4 hours to completely thicken, and due to laziness (it was 1am) I decided to add 1 tsp of cornstarch dissolved in 1 tbsp cold water. Worked like a charm, and my mixture thickened almost instantaneously :/ Not completely authentic if you follow my method, but hey, its good:)
Perfect recipe. I had to cook it much longer to get the right consistency but I did triple the recipe. Also I didn't strain it, I don't think it is necessary. Thank you.
