Dulce de Leche Cream Custard Recipe

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post in partnership with Coffee-mate.  However, all opinions are my own.

One of my favorite recipes to make during the Fall  is Dulce de Leche Cream Custard.  I serve it as a light dessert  after a meal, as an afternoon with tea or as a delicacy with warm milk in the evening.     It brings welcoming  aromas of a bakery into our home and reminds me of  my mothers baking.  It is also the perfect multi-purpose recipe that can be used to make pastries.   It’s one of my go to recipes because the possibilities with Dulce de Leche Cream Custard are endless.

Coffee-mate recently introduced new flavors that capture the natural flavors of Dulce de Leche and Chocolate Abuelita and are a wonderful way to make traditional recipes with ease.   In addition to using it to add delicious flavors to my coffee, I also use it to make my favorite Holiday recipes.



I used Coffee-mate’s Dulce de Leche creamer to make Cream Custard and it is amazing!   I have developed several recipes, but this by far is one of my favorites.   It’s is my favorite ingredient for mult-purpose recipes. To make sure I have enough for the entire family I made 3 batches of Dulce de Leche Cream Custard and stored a batch in a container for future use during the week.





1 cup Nestle La Lechera Dulce de Leche Coffee-mate
1 cup milk
2 egg whites
1 egg
1/4 cup cornstarch (maizena)
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions *

1. In saucepan stir in Coffee-mate La Lechera Dulce de Leche Creamer, milk and egg whites. Bring to boil over medium heat.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together egg whites and egg. Stir remaining sugar and cornstarch; then stir the mix into egg until smooth. When milk comes to boil, pour it into bowl while mixing. Return mixture to the saucepan and slowly boil, stir constantly to prevent so curdle or scorch on the bottom.

3. Remove from heat and pour into container(s). Refrigerate until chilled before using.

*To make the perfect custard you need to stir continuously.

  1. Love french vanilla.

  2. I could really enjoy these recipes. I’m definitely willing to try them, but then I am always willing to try a recipe, especially if it involves coffee – except I choose decaf. Love Coffee-mate too. It’s my first choice. Always.

    The Mexican Chocolate sounds like it would be a flavor I would enjoy.
