One of life’s simple pleasures is to spontaneously take a jar of Nutella or peanut butter and indulge in a spoonful of the delicious, creamy treat without any remorse.

Dulce de leche, literally “milk jam,” falls into this category. Growing up, I used to sneak into the kitchen to snatch a teaspoon of the sweet confection out of my mom’s sight. It was one of my favorite pastimes; well, if you knew her temperament, then it could probably be better described as an extreme sport. Indeed, some cravings taste better when there’s adrenaline involved. 

Omnipresent in every Latin American household, this smooth caramel-like confection is made by cooking down milk with added sugar for several hours. All it takes is patience and a fair amount of stirring. 

The bronze sauce that’s obtained is thick, sweet and rich It’s often drizzled over toast, sandwiched between buttery shortbread cookies (alfajores) or just eaten straight from the jar. 

Dulce de leche makes the perfect filling for babka; but since baking a babka is no simple task, this recipe calls for the practicality of store-bought dulce de leche. Trust me, this approach will save you some nerves and tons of time. As the filling is very sweet, this recipe uses less sugar in the dough than many classic babka recipes. The end result is a soft, intensely flavored brioche-like babka with swirls of gooey dulce de leche flowing through it.
