Roasted Milk

Roasted Milk

Roasted milk is a traditional Latin American dessert, prepared by baking milk, sugar and eggs.  It caramelizes on the surface during cooking, creating a delicious, golden coating.  Its soft texture and sweet flavor make it a popular option in the region’s cuisine.


• 1 liter of milk

• 1 cup of sugar

• 4 eggs

• 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract

• Cinnamon powder (optional, to sprinkle)

Before preparing roast milk, make sure to mix the ingredients well to achieve a smooth texture and avoid baking it at high temperatures for a creamy and delicious result.  Enjoy!


• Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F).

• In a saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until lukewarm.  Don’t let it boil.

• In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and then add the sugar, continuing to beat until the mixture is smooth.

• Add the vanilla essence to the egg and sugar mixture.  Mix well.

• Pour the warm milk over the egg and sugar mixture, whisking constantly to prevent the eggs from cooking.  The idea is to obtain a homogeneous mixture.

• Strain the mixture to eliminate any lumps and then pour it into a baking mold previously caramelized with melted sugar.

• Place the mold in a larger baking dish and add hot water to the pan until it reaches approximately half the height of the mold.  This bain-marie cooking method helps the roasted milk cook evenly.

• Place in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the roasted milk is firm and has turned golden brown on the surface.

• Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature before refrigerating.

• Once cool, refrigerate for at least 2 hours or until very cold.

• You can sprinkle cinnamon powder over the roasted milk before serving, if you wish.

Ready!  Now you can enjoy this delicious dessert.  I hope you like it!
